Hi there Homesteaders,
Check out this excellent grant opportunity from Slow Food Denver. And, wow, up to $3000 award! I received one of these grants to build the Gypsy Farm Bus. So, what cool and exciting ideas do you have? Let Slow Food Denver know, and let's put your idea in motion! Good luck!
From our Friends at Slow Food Denver:
Slow Food Denver C.A.F.E. is pleased to announce our 2013 microgrant project to support innovative and sustainable food initiatives conceived by Metro Denver food entrepreneurs!
We are currently accepting applications for the microgrants (application and details in the attached form or on our website), and would be grateful if you would share this opportunity with any individuals, small business and/or non-profits you know who may be interested in applying. We welcome applications from local, sustainable food projects that help provide healthy food access to communities in need and/or other forms of good, clean and fair food for such communities. In general, projects that are categorized into one or more of the following areas:
1) Healthy Food Access: Projects that seek to increase access to affordable, real food in low-income communities
2) Promoting Regional Biodiversity: Projects that seek to increase, protect and promote biodiverse food and farming traditions within communities in need
Applications must be received by April 1, 2013 and instructions are in the attached form or can be found on our website.
Finalists will be notified by email and will be invited to a C.A.F.E dinner where they will present their projects to the community table. Winners will be chosen by community vote, and will receive microgrants of up to $3000 to support their work.
Any questions can be directed to Ben Hecht by email at email@example.com.
Thanks for sharing this opportunity with the Denver community, and we hope to see you at a C.A.F.E. dinner this year!
Slow Food Denver C.A.F.E. would like to extend a special thank you to Chipotle Mexican Grill and Grow Local Colorado for their ongoing support and generosity of matching funds.
