Southeast Nebraska Workshops Inspired by Annie's Project

Nebraska Extension is excited to offer four programs inspired by Annie's Project in southeast Nebraska between January and March 2020.

Annie's Project is a national program dedicated to providing educational programs designed to strengthen women's roles in their farming operations. These programs provide women opportunities to learn from agricultural professionals and connect with other women in agriculture in a relaxed, fun and dynamic setting. Participants will be able to interact with the speaker and join in hands-on activities.

A registration fee of $5 per person (per class) will cover a light meal, handouts and additional resources.

Please RSVP one week prior to each class by contacting Butler County Extension office at 1-402-367-7410 or York County Extension office at 1-402-362-5508. Questions can be directed to Melissa Bartels at or Jenny Rees at

These courses are hosted by Nebraska Extension and are inspired by Annie's Project. Annie's Project is supported by Farm Credit Service of America in Nebraska.
