The Christian County Extension Office in Taylorville recently wrapped up Annies’s Project, a program that empowers women in agriculture and educates participants in many farm related areas. Participants engage in workshops designed to highlight different aspects of farm related business.


Andrew Holsinger, Horticulture Educator at the University of Illinois Extension Unit 18 says the project is a well rounded offering for participants who want to become more involved on the farm.



Holsinger discussed several topics the students heard about during the course of the project.



Holsinger says the Extension Office was quite pleased with the project, and will consider bringing it back in the future.
