Grant Writing 101 for Farmers
Are you interested in trying out a new idea on your farm? Have you thought about applying for a grant but weren’t sure where to start? On Wednesday, October 6th and Thursday, October 7th UW-Madison Extension will host a 2-part webinar to introduce farmers and agricultural professionals to grant opportunities in agriculture. Both webinars run from 12-1:30pm. On October 6th Margaret Krome from the Michael Fields Agricultural Institute will cover basic principles of grant-writing, including how to design a sound project, when applying for a grant does or does not make sense, and how to find potential funding sources. On October 7th a panel of grant program staff from USDA and the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, and a farmer who has successfully applied for grants will cover some of the ins and outs of applying for specific grants. You can register for just one day, but we encourage you to attend both!
