ANNIE'S PROJECT NEW JERSEY, LESSONS OVER THE YEARS
Rutgers Cooperative Extension
Cape May Court House
Annie’s Project New Jersey started in 2011 as a six-week farm management course for women. Since that time the program has evolved and changed- meeting with successes and challenges along the way. Looking back at what has worked and what needs improvement allows us to then look forward to the future of Annie’s Project New Jersey. In doing so our goal is to provide input to anyone who wishes to replicate this course. From changes in format and educational delivery to new locations and topics- this constant evolution based on team experiences and participant surveys has contributed to the success of our award winning program. Still, new challenges have been identified and will need to be evaluated in order to chart the program’s future course. We believe this reevaluation and reinvention has led to the sustained success of the course and allowed us to continue to offer a program that provides a much needed educational experience to the women of our state.
