Grant-writing workshops for farmers scheduled for July

Are you interested in trying out a new idea on your farm?  Have you thought about applying for a grant but weren’t sure where to start? Tune in Wednesday, July 1st at 1 p.m. to hear Margaret Krome from the Michael Fields Agricultural Institute present a webinar on grant-writing basics for farmers, including how to design a sound project, when applying for a grant does or does not make sense, and how to find potential funding sources. This will be the first in a 3-part series of webinars on grant programs for farmers.

On Wednesday, July 8th at 1 p.m. Chris and Juli McGuire of Two Onion Farm will talk about their experience applying for Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education (SARE) grants and a Value Added Producer Grant (VAPG).

And on Wednesday, July 15th at 1 p.m. program staff from SARE, VAPG, Buy Local Buy Wisconsin, Wisconsin Producer-led Watersheds, and Specialty Crop Block Grants will cover some of the ins and outs of applying for those and other grants.
