The Northeast Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education (SARE) Program is accepting applications for 2019 Farmer Grants. These grants are intended for farm business owners and managers who would like to explore new sustainable-production and marketing practices, often through an experiment, trial, or on-farm demonstration. Awards are capped at $15,000 and projects may address the wide range of issues that affect farming in the Northeast.
Northeast SARE will host a Farmer Grant webinar on Oct. 10 from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. Carol Delaney, grant program coordinator, will provide information on program eligibility, how to apply, types of projects SARE funds, allowable expenses and more.
