Annie's Project Six Week Workshop

Union County Extension Office, Buckeye Room

Women in agriculture who are interested in taking a more active role in farm operations may sign up for Annie’s Project, a multi-part risk-management course offered by Ohio State University Extension. The workshop is being sponsored by OSU Extension offices in Champaign, Delaware and Union counties. Annie’s Project is designed to strengthen women’s role in modern farm enterprises. The project’s namesake was a woman who grew up in a small rural community and spent her adult life learning how to be an involved, successful business partner with her husband. Annie’s daughter, Ruth Hambleton, became an Extension educator in Illinois and developed the program in 2000 in honor of her mother’s life experience. It is currently offered in 22 states. Annie’s Project focuses on five broad aspects of risk management typical in the agricultural setting: human, financial, marketing, production and legal.Cost for the workshop is $80 per person (reduced from the state fee of $95 through local support). Seating is limited, so early registration is encouraged. To register or for more information contact the Union County Extension Office at 937-644-8117.
