Support Local Farmers, Gapers Block:

Successful farm applicants must be individually owned, in operation for at least three years, and able to demonstrate how these funds will promote the availability of local foods in the Chicago area and improve the farm's viability.
Grants are due by February 28, 2011. For more information and to download the grant application, visit the Frontera Farmer Foundation website.
