As part of the Land & Sea Together program, grants were allocated to 10 amazing organizations across Rhode Island who are supporting historically marginalized farmers and foresters. These funds are intended to support programs and operations and create a direct positive impact.
Each organization received $5,000 to support their efforts and we can’t wait to see what they accomplish!
