WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. – Women farmers are generating a cultural wave in American agriculture that shifts management, assets and opportunities to a new wave of farmers across the country. “Annie’s Project: Farming in Indiana’s Cities and Urban Fringe” is a six-week course that seeks to build on this movement. A discussion-based workshop, the course brings together women to learn from experts in urban agricultural production, financial management, human resources, marketing and legal fields.
Whether they are beginners or experienced, understanding the five areas of agricultural risk, knowing how to analyze agricultural spreadsheets and other necessary skills are essential to a successful agricultural career. Learning them in an environment where questions and discussion are encouraged leads to solid and productive discussions.
Annie’s Project courses have successfully reached over 9,000 farm and ranch women in 33 states. Purdue Extension will be offering this workshop to urban Hoosier women from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. ET on Tuesday evenings from February 23 to March 30. The cost of the virtual course is $ 65 per person, which includes a workbook and support materials for all sessions. Register now for this workshop by Tuesday (February 16).
