We’ve finished the 8 week program Dig In! at OSUE last week, and we really enjoyed the class and our classmates :).
This past weekend, we attended the Cleveland Seasonal High Tunnel Initiative Planning and Implementation Workshop, where we learned that we could apply for a cost-share from the USDA‘s Natural Resource Conservation Service (NRCS) through their Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP) to help us purchase a high tunnel kit for our project.
The Federation of Southern Cooperatives (FSC) sponsored the event and offered their services to the residents to help us with the process of obtaining permits, construction time-lines and FAQ.
We’ve applied for financial assistance from the NRCS and we hope to hear from them soon. Wish us luck!
