Permalink Cultivating Change

Cultivating Change is a grant program that gives local farms funds to upgrade operations, invest in food safety, implement sustainable technology, and continue doing what they do best: grow. The program is funded by Greener Fields Together's network of fresh produce distributors throughout North America who want to invest in the farms that have been the backbone of their communities for generations. Greener Fields Together local farm partners are automatically eligible to participate in both the popular vote contest and panel review process. Local farms that are not part of Greener Fields Together are able to apply and win via the popular vote contest. The popular vote contest makes $25,000 available, with $10,000 going to the first-place vote-getter and smaller amounts awarded down to sixth place.
Applications are due by December 15, 2018.
