Every winter, we provide second grants of up to $5000 to previously-funded projects with a proven track record of success.
In 2016, we gave $147,000 in Impact Grant funds to the following projects.
The project bears an emphasis towards the scaling up of sustainable, smaller-scale farming methods that will allow small-scale farmers to increase yields while conserving resources and minimizing environmental damage. More farmers and new communities shall be targeted. Participant farmers shall be viewed as proponents of dissemination; they will be challenged and encouraged to reach other farmers. Training workshops shall be organized for both new and old and farmers. Training materials shall be developed. Documentation of impact and limitations shall be prioritized; the monitoring and evaluation progress shall be explicit.
