SARE Farmer/Rancher and Youth Educator Grant Writing Workshop

Two SARE Farmer/Rancher Grant Writing Workshops will be held, one in St. Charles MO on Sept 11th and the other in Hillsboro MO on Sept 18th.

The Farmer/Rancher Grant Program is for farmers who want to explore sustainable solutions to problems through on-farm research, demonstration and education projects.  A single farmer can get up to $7,500; two farmers working together on the project can get up to $14,000 and three or more farmers working together can get up to $24,000.

North Central SARE recognizes that youth programs are a way to introduce new and exciting farming and ranching options to youth, parents and community members.  The program supports opportunities for youth educators to research, demonstrate and learn more about sustainable agriculture.
