  1. Hi- I received a newsletter from Cornell Cooperative Extension about Annie’s project being offered in Ulster County during February. Is this still happening? How would I sign up? Thank you!

  3. Hi, our local paper ran an article about Women in Agriculture and said that there are classes in Orange County with scholarships available. Please email me with details. Thank you so much P. Johnson

  4. It’s too bad this starts on the 6th because Farm Credit is having a big health care reform informational meeting on the 6th as well! There isn’t any way they would delay the start one week or change the date for the first week? I would assume that there would be many people interested in that meeting as well!

  5. Hi Becky,

    Thank you for your post. I am sorry thi other event is taking place at the same time, as we had presenters and session established well in advance. I would recommend that you have you name added to a waiting list for Annie’s Project in the future.

    Thank you
