Albany extension offers Annie’s Project sessions for farm, ranch women

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 Albany County.

Annie’s Project sessions are 11 a.m.-2 p.m. Wednesdays from Oct. 15-Nov. 19 at the extension office meeting room in Laramie, said Kellie Chichester, extension educator in Albany County. The cost is $30; sessions include lunch. Registration deadline is Tuesday, Oct. 14.

“This will be a great program for women involved in agriculture to come out and network and learn from the various speakers,” said Chichester.

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.
