Funding Your Farm: Strategies to Boost Grant Success
Over 80 farmers from across New England and beyond participated virtually in a panel discussion hosted by Greenbelt and New Entry Sustainable Farming Project called Funding Your Farm: Strategies to Boost Grant Success.
Four fabulous local farmers - Christopher Grant, owner of Grant Family Farm in West Newbury; Mohammed Hannan, owner of Hannah Healthy Foods in Lincoln; Brittany Overshiner, owner of Upswing Farm in Pepperell; and Glenn Cook, owner of Cider Hill Farm in Amesbury - shared their combined 60+ years of experience in applying for state and federal funding to support their farms’ success.
The workshop is part of Greenbelt’s Our Farms, Our Future program, which seeks to support Essex County’s farmers through free educational workshops and preserving farmland. A recording of the Funding Your Farm workshop is available here.
