We are thrilled to be bringing back the Savor the Season program for 2012! The Kansas Rural Center was recently awarded a Specialty Crop Block Grant from the Kansas Department of Agricultural that will further develop the current program.
In addition to the colorful Savor the Season cards that have been used in previous years, crop production and marketing guides will be developed as well as educational opportunities such as webinars and field days highlighting featured crops for 2012. Adding to this year’s program, 10 mini-grants up to $200 and 7 cost-shares up to $300 will be awarded to markets to help promote seasonal specialty crops.
We of course want to feature crops that you feel there is a strong or potential market for in your area. This is where your help is needed to decide which 10 crops we feature in 2012. Please consider the following questions carefully and rate each option even if it is something your market doesn't currently have available.
Thank you for your participation!
