Annie's Project - Level I - TAZWELL COUNTY

March 6-22, 2017 (5:30 PM - 9:00 PM )

Annie's Project is designed to empower farm women to be better business partners through a series of education sessions covering the business of farming and ranching, and now is your chance to register to attend this program. Since its inception in 2003, 8,000 farm women from 30 states have graduated from the program and have successfully taken on the challenges of managing and operating farms. Annie's Project helps farm women learn about farm management and improve their skills as business partners. Women are taught the basics of managing money, how property is titled, setting up farm leases, basic grain marketing, deciding on insurance products, and putting together a business plan which includes financial documents like balance sheets, income statements and cash flows. Annie's Project is ideal for women who marry into farm families, or for women who have been away from the farm scene and need to get in touch with what is happening on their farms that they left years ago.

Classes will be held every Monday and Wednesday evening from 5:30 to 9 pm starting March 6 and ending March 22, at the Tazewell County Farm Bureau Building in Pekin.  These educational sessions are sponsored by University of Illinois Extension and Tazewell County Farm Bureau. If you need a reasonable accommodation to participate in these sessions, please contact Tazewell County Extension at 309-347-6614.

The cost of the program is $75 and is payable prior to the evening of March 6. Checks should be payable to University of Illinois Extension.

Pre-registration is required by February 27, 2017.
