Farm Business Planning for Women Farmers [Online]
**This course is full, and registration is now closed.*
This online program is designed to teach women farmers how to develop a well-designed business plan for their farming operation. The program is specially created for women farmers who are in the beginning phases of developing their business plans or looking to redevelop current plans. Participants will be provided resources (recordings and print) to watch and read prior to each session, while the live sessions will be used as working sessions; that is, participants will use majority of the allotted sessions’ time to write assigned sections of their farm’s business plan. The workshops will also provide ample opportunity for feedback on individual plans from facilitators and participants, as well as for networking.
