Special to The Herald
The Yazoo County Extension Service office will host Annie’s Project, an 18-hour course for women farmers and ranchers, beginning on Feb.16.
Annie’s Project is an educational program dedicated to strengthen the roles of women in the modern farm enterprise. It is based on the experiences of Annie, a young wife who made it her goal to work with her husband to make their farm successful.
The series is designed for farm women with a passion for business and involvement and a desire to increase knowledge and skills. Participants in the five weekly sessions will learn about estate planning, business plans, financial records, marketing, federal resources, and other topics. Each session will include a meal and time for networking with others with similar interests.
Meetings will take place at the Yazoo County Extension Service office located at 212 East Broadway Street, Yazoo City, on the 3rd Floor of the County Office Building.
An enrollment fee of $25 includes registration for the Mississippi Women for Agriculture Annual Conference in Raymond on February 28.
