Annie's Project Coming To Fremont County

Iowa State University Extension and Outreach in Fremont County is excited to announce that Annie’s Project will be offered in Sidney.


About Annie's Project

 Annie’s Project empowers farm women to be better business partners through networks and by managing and organizing critical information. Since 2005, more than 350 farm women have participated in various southwest Iowa sites. The six-week course is designed especially for farm women to help them develop their management and decision-making skills for their farms. Sessions include brief presentations, discussions focused on the participants’ questions, and computer training to use spreadsheets. Annie’s Project gives farm women the opportunity to learn from female agricultural professionals and network with other women in similar situations.

Annie’s Project will meet from 6 to 9 p.m. on August 21, August 28, September 4, September 11, September 18, and September 25 in the Business Education classroom at the Sidney High School.
