Annie’s Project™ Workshop Series comes to Brentwood, NH starting March 11

The University of New Hampshire Cooperative Extension is excited to offer Annie’s Project™ coming to Brentwood, NH. Annie’s Project™ is a Farm Business Management workshop series for women in agriculture either as sole, primary and joint owners of farms as well as women interested in setting up a secondary enterprise on a family farm. The workshop series empowers farm women to be better business owners and/or partners by managing and organizing critical information and increasing their network.

The six-week workshop series is designed specifically for farm women to help them develop their management and decision-making skills for their farms. Sessions include brief presentations and discussions focused on the participants’ questions. Topics include social marketing, borrowing funds, farm tax issues and accounting, value added products, insurance, interpreting financial statements, and estate planning. 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 at the Rockingham County Complex from 6 to 9 p.m. on March 11, 18, 25, April 1, 8 and 15. The cost is $60 per person, and participants receive materials, speakers and dinner. The brochure (.pdf) has more details about the content and curriculum.

Attendance is limited. Preregistration is required. Register online early to reserve your spot.

      Hi Marianne! I think Nada or her assistant would be able to answer that question.
