OSU Extension in Summit and Portage Counties are teaming up to offer Annie’s Project from February 21st – March 28th, 2019. Annie’s project is a six-week program designed to address risk management education for farm women. Its objective is to educate women entrepreneurs so that they are more prepared to make farm management decisions. While a large number of farm women own and operate farms, others play a major role in the decision-making process of farm operations for farm families. Annie’s Project provides in-depth sessions on topics that are important for decision-making of the family farm. The program topics covered include human resources, legal risks, financial risks, marketing risks, and production costs and risks.
Pre-registration is required by Febuary 14th, 2019. Registration fee is $100/per person and includes all materials and dinners. Registration limited to 25 women. Make checks payable to OSU Extension, and mail to Portage County Extension office, 705 Oakwood St., Suite 103, Ravenna, OH 44266. If you have any questions, please call 330-296-6432.
