SARE GRANT Workshops throughout NH!
NOFA-NH, UNH Cooperative Extension, and the Small and Beginning Farmers of NH are
collaborating to build capacity for farmers to develop and submit SARE Grants to explore new
methods of agriculture on their farms and in their communities.
A two session series will be held around the state. The first session will be held on to October
11, from 6-8 pm and will educate participants on how to develop and apply for SARE Farmer
Grower Grants, Partnership Grants, and Community Grants.
Sessions will be held in Merrimack, Grafton, Rockingham, and Sullivan Counties Extension
Offices. Video Conferencing will link participants in all sites, giving farmers and service providers
the opportunity to brainstorm and collaborate on projects. A follow up session will be held via
webinar on Sunday October 28, from 5-6 pm. This webinar will focus on answering questions
people have on putting their grant together.
