This year we have reached out to local chefs to connect you with what varieties they are looking to purchase. We will be setting aside a few grant awards specifically for these items and look forward to connecting the grantees with the Chefs.
Slow Food St. Louis is now accepting applications for the Biodiversity Farmer Micro-Grants. Slow Food St. Louis has awarded $20,000 over the past three years, supporting over 200 different varieties and breeds. We are offering grant money to further support biodiversity in the St. Louis (and surrounding area) food system. The grants will be made available to farmers and producers for growing heirloom varieties and/or raising heritage breeds.
