Third Thursday Thing
Since 1997, Kentucky State University has offered free workshops on sustainable agriculture on the third Thursday of every month except December. Topics are different every month. No pre-registration is required. Lunch is included.
Enhancing Agricultural Opportunities for Small Scale Farmers
KSU is accepting applications from small-scale farmers that are motivated to improve their farming operations or improve the marketability of their products. Small scale farmers (annual agricultural sales less than $250,000) may apply for up to $5,000 to improve their business. Grants are available for:
- Certified organic farmers, and those officially transitioning to organic with the Kentucky Department of Agriculture (see KDA organic page for guidelines);
- Value-added enterprise development; and
- Aquaculture farming and marketing.
Funding for mini-grant program comes from the Kentucky Agricultural Development Fund.
