A new funding opportunity for small farmers, from the FruitGuys Community Fund
The FruitGuys Community Fund, established in 2012 as a non-profit, fiscally sponsored project of Community Initiatives, is pleased to announce its 2014 grant cycle to support sustainability projects for small- to mid-size independent farms and sustainable agriculture nonprofits. The Fund was established by The FruitGuys, a national fruit distribution company based in San Francisco, after 5 years of grants made through its Farm Steward program. The Fund’s primary goals are to help farms, orchards, and agricultural nonprofits operate more sustainably, create a healthier environment, and stronger local economies and food systems. For more information, see our website. In 2013, five grants were made in California and Pennsylvania.
The deadline to apply is February 15, 2014.
