The Mississippi State Extension will host a workshop July 31 in Hattiesburg. Please share with other individuals, organizations, and associations that may be interested.
The program will encompass funding, financing, and grant writing for Local Foods Growers, Farmers Markets, and Local Food Initiatives. This workshop will cover all the bases for someone needing access to capital for a local foods venture. Topics will range from working with a bank on financing, to understanding funding resources and farm programs, to basic grant writing and what grants are right for what types of projects.
