Course targets women interested in farming

December 22, 2009

The University of Maryland and Delaware Cooperative Extension will conduct Annie's Project from January until March at nine sites.

Annie's Project focuses on the many aspects of farm management and is designed to empower women in overall farm decision making and to build local networks throughout the state.

The target audience is farmwomen interested in agriculture and involvement in the farm operation.

Topics for the sessions cover the five areas of risk management - production, marketing, financial, legal risk and human resources. The course is open to anyone interested in farm management practices.

The eight-session course will be offered at the Washington County Agricultural Education Center, at 7303 Sharpsburg Pike, starting Thursday, Jan. 14, from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
