Annie’s Project Offers ‘Farming in Indiana’s Cities and Urban Fringe’ for Women in Agriculture

(UNDATED) – Farm women are generating a cultural tide in American agriculture that is moving management, assets, and opportunities to a new wave of farmers across the country.

“Annie’s Project: Farming in Indiana’s Cities and Urban Fringe” is a six-week course that seeks to build on this movement. A discussion-based workshop, the course brings women together to learn from experts in urban agriculture production, financial management, human resources, marketing, and legal fields.

Whether new or experienced, understanding the five areas of agricultural risk, knowing how to analyze agricultural spreadsheets and other necessary skills are vital to a successful farming career. Learning them in an environment where questions and discussion are encouraged results in robust and productive discussions.

Annie’s Project courses have successfully reached more than 9,000 farm and ranch women in 33 states.

Purdue Extension will offer this workshop to urban Hoosier women from 6 p.m. until 9 p.m. ET Tuesday evenings, Feb. 23 through March 30.

The cost for the virtual course is $65 per person, which includes a workbook and support materials for all sessions. 

Register for this workshop by Tuesday, Feb. 16.
