Ladies of Madison County join us for Annie's Project in April and May!



Annie's Project is a six-week intensive agribusiness series for women with a passion for business and involvement, and a desire to increase knowledge and skills. Conducted by the Alabama Cooperative Extension System, through a grant from the United States Department of Agriculture, 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. Alabama Farm Credit is the sponsor the classes.

Regional Extension agents and agribusiness professionals will team-teach the classes.

"Sessions are on various agribusiness-related topics including: marketing, communications, financial recordkeeping, business planning, insurance, risk management and much 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 Tuesday evenings from 5 p.m. until 8:30 p.m., April 28, May 5, 12, 19, 26 and June 2 at the Charles Stone Agricultural Center at 819 Cook Avenue in Huntsville. A light meal will be provided at each session as well as a training notebook and support materials.
