Annie’s Project Site Moved to Trenton

Original plans for the winter 2016 session of Annie’s Project called for it to be held in Mt. Vernon, but due to a large amount of interest in Clinton County, that session is being moved to the Kaskaskia College Trenton Education Center in Trenton. Annie’s Project is an educational program dedicated to strengthening farm women’s roles in the modern farm enterprise.  Due to the change in location, registration will be extended to Feb 6.

Annie’s Project and University of Illinois Extension are joining forces to present a six-session farm management course for farm women starting February, 2016. This course is a discussion-based workshop bringing women together to learn from experts in the field. Through the use of innovative technology, participants will learn about business plans, marketing, farm leases, insurances, estate planning, property titles and financial management from the nation’s top agricultural professionals. The program will also introduce and connect the participants to local professionals who can assist them long after the program has ended.  

This unique program will begin on Tuesday, February 16, 2016 and will meet every Tuesday and Thursday evening for three weeks from 6 to 9 p.m. The final session will be held March 3. The course fee is $50.00 and includes a program binder, class handouts, resources and 18 hours of instruction.

Please pre-register by Feb 6 by calling the Clinton County Extension Office at 618-526-4551.
