Annie's Project Logo

In November 2017, a group of Virginia Cooperative Extension agents and other agricultural service providers from Virginia and neighboring states attended an Annie's Project facilitator training. Annie's Project is a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing educational programs designed to strengthen women's roles in the modern farm enterprise. To visit the national Annie's Project page, click HERE.

As trained facilitators, these individuals are prepared to bring Annie's Project trainings to Virginia. We have three coordinators who will work with you to find the closest Annie's Project trainings to you and answer any questions you may have.
