Untitled1Classes to prepare you farm for Future Generations 

The University of Maryland and Delaware Cooperative Extension will conduct Annie’s Project; Managing for Today and Tomorrow, during the fall of 2014, conveniently located at Chesapeake College in Wye Mills, MD.  Women are generating a cultural tide in American agriculture that is moving management, assets and opportunities to a new wave of agriculturalists across the country.  Managing for Today and Tomorrow focuses on the management processes and decisions needed to make successful transitions.  It includes hands-on activities, interaction with local professionals and up to date resources, staying consistent with the popular format of Annie’s Project.  Participants of all ages and experience levels will practice tasks to increase confidence in setting goals, nurturing effective family conversations, and defining the farm legacy.

Managing for Today and Tomorrow will focus on the decisions made during succession, business, estate and retirement planning and will be combined to form a plan for the future.

The course is open to all and will be three sessions starting on Thursday, September 4, 2014 9:00 a.m – 2:00 p.m.   The cost of the entire course including meals and materials is $60.  Please register by August 28 – space is limited.  For more information and to register, visit the website or call 410-758-0166.  If you require special assistance to attend the classes please contact the site at least two weeks prior.
