Empowering farm and ranch women with financial and marketing knowledge and opportunities to network with each other are some of the goals of a University of Wyoming Extension program in Fremont County.
Annie’s Project sessions are 5:30-8:30 p.m. Thursdays from April 4-May 9 at the Armory Building in Riverton, said Ron Cunningham, extension educator in Fremont County. There is no fee; sessions include dinner, and space is limited to 25 registrants. Registration deadline is Friday, March 29.
“I think this should be a great program for women involved in agriculture and will be well worth their time to come and learn from the various speakers,” said Cunningham.
The program is based on Annie’s Project, a program for women in agriculture with a passion for business and being involved in their family operations. Iowa State University Extension developed the Annie’s Project program.
