We love speaking at Mother Earth News Fair, where there’s a dazzling array of workshops and lectures designed to get you further down the path to independence and self-reliance. Whether you want to learn how to grow and raise your own food, build your own root cellar, or create a green dream home, come out and learn everything you need to know — and then some! https://www.motherearthnewsfair.com/

In 2016 and 2017, Michele led two dynamic workshops describing grant resources for agriculture. There are many grantmaking programs that support sustainable energy, innovative crop production, or agricultural education. The U.S. Department of Agriculture is the authority on these programs, offering assistance through the National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA),  REAP (Rural Energy Assistance Program) and Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education (SARE).
