2019 Mini Grants

Mini Grant Overview

Success of 2017 and 2018 programs and multi-state program growth led to availability of mini-grant funds again in 2019. In this third year of programming, Growing Together WI mini grants were available to University of Wisconsin-Extension FoodWIse projects in partnership with active Master Gardener Volunteers. Awarded money was available to one or multiple local Master Gardener Program projects aimed at increasing access and availability of fresh fruits and vegetables for families and individuals with limited incomes in Wisconsin.

Funding is to support collaborative projects between FoodWIse educators and Master Gardener Volunteers in Wisconsin towards the goal of improved food safety, security, and health for families with limited incomes by increasing access and availability of fresh fruits and vegetables for families and individuals with limited incomes in Wisconsin.
