Annie's Project Logo

Objective

Annies project is designed to empower women in agriculture
Provide information in farm management and build local networks throughout the state.
The target audience is women with a passion for business, agriculture and involvement in the farm operation.


Key Principles:

Teach all five areas of agricultural risk: financial, human resources, legal, marketing, & production.
Invite local professionals to serve as guest instructors where possible.
Allocate half of class time to discussion and hands-on activities.
Provide un-biased, researched based information.
Create a learning environment where mentoring is spontaneous.

Core Values:

Safe Harbor - all questions or situations are welcomed for sharing and open discussion.
Connection - to each other and to professionals introduced to them in class.
Discovery - the moment when something makes sense where before it did not.
Guided Intelligence - at any one time there is a woman in the audience who knows more about the subject being presented than the instructor and is willing to share her experience.
