Organic Farmer Researcher Network -- SARE Grant Programs: Tips and Insights to Pitching a Proposal

North Central SARE (Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education) offers several grant programs to strengthen communities, increase producers’ economic viability, and improve the environment through research and education. Active calls include a Research and Education Grant, Partnership Grant, Youth Educator Grant, and Farmer Rancher Grant programs. Depending on the program, farmers can apply for these grants by themselves, in partnership with other farms and businesses, or in collaboration with non-profit institutions. Beth will walk us through these opportunities, describe the selection process, and share helpful resources, common mistakes to avoid, and strategies for writing a strong proposal. Learn more about SARE grants at and bring your questions to our Sept 7 meeting.
