University of Minnesota Extension is committed to supporting women in agriculture and the unique opportunities and challenges they face. Our collaboration with Annie’s Project brings these women together to gain valuable insights into important matters affecting their lives, all while building a network of supportive peers. We will cover five specific risk management topics and facilitate discussions relevant to their farm business and community. Course topics will include financial reporting, human resources, legal, market risk and production metrics.
Each class of the course will be held on Thursday evenings for six weeks. Registrants should plan to attend all six sessions. Classes are from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. with a meal served at 5:30 p.m. Dates are Jan. 20, Jan. 27, Feb. 3, Feb. 10, Feb. 17 and Feb. 24. All classes will be held at the Warner Lake Park Nature Center, County Road 143, Clearwater, MN 55320.
The course fee is $50 and includes all meals and materials. To register, visit www.z.umn.edu/CMNAnnies or call 320-255-6169 Ext. 1. Register early because space is limited. Launched in 2002, Annie’s Project–Education for Farm Women is dedicated to strengthening women’s roles in modern farm enterprises and empowering women to be better business partners.
