Known & Grown is currently accepting application for our 2023 Microgrants.
Historically underserved farmers are integral to a resilient and equitable food community. However they face many barriers to success in adopting good environmental practices and running a farming business in general.
Known & Grown STL is awarding 3 microgrants of up to $1000 each to historically underserved farmers in north St Louis for projects that develop or improve environmental stewardship practices on their farm.
Environmental stewardship includes practices that protect and preserve the quality of our soil, air, and water, promote biodiversity, and reduce reliance on fossil fuels. The goal of these grants is to improve our food system by supporting sustainable farming practices that provide healthy, nutrient-dense food to the local, north St Louis community
We hope this will be the first of many years that we are able to distribute microgrants into the hands of farmers in our community. We are actively seeking more funding to expand the footprint of our microgrants and be able to offer them to more farmers.
Deadline to submit proposals: Friday, June 9th.
