CONSULTATIONS: Free with Pending Grant

Hello!

The grant that we had previously which paid for consultations has been opened again with approval for past recipients to apply, and we are hoping to receive it once more to continue in helping others grow high quality produce.

If you submit a letter (which I have drafted for you below), then you will be signed up to receive free consulting on your large farm or small garden from Jeff Poppen if the grant is to be awarded.

Your letter could mean the difference for us, so please fill in the highlighted areas and send it back to me, and share with any of your friends who you think would appreciate this opportunity.

Thank you so much in advance for your support!

Letter of support for consultations:

**Date**

To whom it may concern,

I own/operate a ___ acre farm in the _______ area. **Insert description here**.

I would like to have Jeff Poppen consult with me by visiting my farm and being available for questions via phone and email, but can not afford to compensate him for his time and services. I would like his help with marketing and the increased production of agriculture products using organic and biodynamic methods. This will help me to increase domestic consumption of and access to locally and regionally produced agriculture products, and to develop new market opportunities through farmers markets, CSA’s, and other direct consumer-to-producer markets.

It is my understanding that through the award of this grant, Jeff Poppen will be available forconsultations with local farmers and gardeners, and I am looking forward to taking full advantage of the opportunities this will give me and others trying to make a living in agriculture.

Thank you for your consideration,
