FruitGuys Community Fund Announces Farm Grant Awards
This is The FruitGuys Community Fund’s tenth year of providing small grants that have big positive impacts on farms’ sustainability and their communities. A volunteer grant review committee followed the Fund’s farming manifesto criteria and recommended 17 farms and agricultural nonprofits in 11 states to receive a total of $71,136 in funding. A majority of the recipients are owned or led by women who are Black, Indigenous, or People of Color (BIPOC). Funded projects include drip irrigation systems, rainwater catchment systems, produce coolers, raised beds, and more.
