3:10 p.m. Sustainable Agriculture Programs For Kansas Farmers
Kansas State University is home to the Kansas Center for Sustainable Agriculture and Alternative Crops – long name, helpful program. Learn about the Center and the sustainable ag programs it works with. More importantly this is an opportunity to learn about grants available from SARE – Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education (another long name, helpful program) especially the grant programs for farmers: Farmer Rancher Grant , Partnership Grant, and Youth Educator Grant. We’ll discuss what types of programs have been funded, what SARE looks for in a grant, and how to get started writing a grant.
