Pollination Of Flowers By Bees Pears.

Each year we award grants ranging from $2,000-$5,000 for projects that help small farms and/or orchards operate more sustainably, both environmentally and economically, as well as strengthen community outreach. Some examples of sustainability projects may include (but are not limited to): planting of cover crops to help with water management and soil fertility; planting pollinator-attracting perennials and/or installing beehives; installation of bat boxes or owl boxes to attract predators and keep rodent numbers down; installation of high tunnels or hoop houses to extend the growing season.

Our 2016 Grant Cycle is now closed. Our Request for Proposals for 2017 will be posted in December 2016.
