EPA Awards ‘Farmer to Farmer’ Grants
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced the recipients of nearly $11 million in “Farmer to Farmer” grants. The Farmer to Farmer grant funding is available to develop innovative practices within farming communities, measure the results of those practices, and identify how the practices will be incorporated into farming operations. A list of funded projects is available online. They include projects on water quality, agroforestry, grazing for ecosystem services, algae harvesting, and developing farmer networks.
