Annie's Project Returns in March

New sessions of the popular Annie's Project with a special focus on Value Added Agriculture are scheduled in March for Ames. The course takes place in four 6-hour sessions on Fridays, March 7, 14, 21, & 28, from 9:30 am-3:30pm. DMACC Hunziker Center in Ames will host the course. Registration fee is $75.
 
The mission of Annie's Project  is to empower farm women to be better business partners through networks and by managing and organizing critical information.  Inspired by her mother's life experiences, Ruth Hambleton developed a program focused on risk management and set out to share it with farm women living and working in a complex, dynamic, evolving business environment. This program cover all five areas of agriculture risk - financial, human resources, legal, marketing, and production - but focuses on niche production, small-scale operations, direct marketing, further processing, agritourism, and other value added types of agriculture. Participants will develop a business plan.
