Alive Magazine: Growing Prosperity

October 7th, 2011 | 1 Comment | Posted in news

Slow Food St. Louis’ biodiversity grant program got a writeup in Alive Magazine!

Each year, Slow Food St. Louis awards micro-grants to local farmers who are doing great things for the St. Louis food scene—whether it’s supplying local chefs with fresh produce, selling their goods at community farmers’ markets or offering Community Supported Agriculture programs. The focus of the grant program is to help farmers diversify their crops and develop a niche for themselves by growing heirloom vegetables or raising heritage livestock. The program has distributed nearly $20,000 over the past three years, supporting more than 200 heirloom crops and heritage breed animals.

    I am interested in learning more about your grant program.  How does one qualify?
    We have 9.5 acres in Leslie, MO (1/2 hour drive from Union, MO) on Hwy. 50.  We are willing to accepting ideas and even working with others to make our farm a productive endeavor.

    Thank you.
