WVU Extension’s Women in Ag to host Risk Management Workshops

The Free Press WV

West Virginia is home to nearly 10,000 female farmers. To help this important group of agribusiness owners, WVU Extension Service’s Women in Ag program is hosting a series of workshops throughout the state (and online) to provide them with tools and resources needed to run a successful business.

Through a partnership with Annie’s Project, a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing educational programs designed to strengthen women’s roles in the modern farm enterprise, WVU Extension experts will host the West Virginia Annie’s Project at multiple sites in West Virginia February through June.

The six-session program provides training in risk assessment, business planning and decision-making.

The program also provides opportunities to network with your peers and industry experts, and experts will offer mentoring and coaching for aspiring and beginning producers.

“The need to understand agribusiness risks and how to effectively reduce the impact of these risks remains the same regardless of gender,” said Dee Singh-Knights, WVU Extension Service agricultural economics specialist and State Coordinator for WV Annie’s Project. “It’s the unique, peer-to-peer learning environment and networking opportunities that make Annie’s Project a unique and welcoming experience for women in our field.”

Workshops will be held in Glenville starting Monday, March 26 at 6 p.m. at the WVU Gilmer County Extension Office.

Cost to attend is $30, and class space is limited to 25 participants per site on a first-come-first-served basis.

Details about the Glenville Annie’s Project Class can be obtained by contacting Daisy Bailey, at ‘’ or call 304.462.7061.
