The USDA Agricultural Marketing Service recently announced they will be accepting grant applications for their Farmers Market and Local Food Promotion Programs. To raise awareness about the two programs and, hopefully, increase the number of applications and overall success rate for Virginia, Theresa Nartea and Eric Bendfeldt will be offering two free grant-writing workshops. The first workshop will be in Petersburg on April 8 and the second will be in Roanoke on April 15.
Preregister for only one of the workshops. The workshops are free, and materials and light refreshments will be provided.
If you have any other questions about the workshops, please contact Eric Bendfeldt at 540-432-6029.
