Ladies of Hale County join us for Annie's Project in February and March!



Annie's Project is a six-week intensive agri-business series for women with a passion for business and involvement, and a desire to increase knowledge and skills. Conducted the Alabama Cooperative Extension System, the series helps empower women to manage information systems and to build local networks. Participants will also learn about resources available to them and will discuss topics of importance to their future in agribusiness.


Regional Extension Agent Ruth Brock will conduct the class each week.


"Sessions are on various agribusiness-related topics including: managing information, marketing, communications, financial recordkeeping, business planning, good agricultural practices, risk management, insurance and more," said Brock.


"The sessions are interactive and the ladies learn from each other as well as the Extension educator. By the end of the six-week series, a strong work and support network is usually formed amongst the women attending," Brock added.


Sessions will run six consecutive Thursday evenings from 5 p.m. until 8:30 p.m., Feb. 12, 19, 26, March 5, 12, and 19 at the Fish Farming Center, 529 Centerville Street, in Greensboro. A light meal will be provided at each session as well as a leather training notebook and support materials.
