Grant/Funding Resources
  • Farm to Consumer Legal Defense Fund (outside of Washington D.C.): “The FTCLDF protects the rights of the nation’s family farms, artisan food producers, consumers and affiliate communities to engage in direct commerce free of harassment by federal, state and local government interference; it protects the rights of farmers and artisanal producers to make their products available and the rights of consumers to access the foods of their choice from the source of their choice.”
  • Grants to Grow Farmer Breeding Program: “FARRMS empowers people to dream and realize those dreams creating thriving, exciting, diverse, and sustainable rural communities. We establish links between people, good food, living farms and the environment through hands-on educational experiences. We model sustainability by acting with appreciation and respect for the environment, society, and just economics. FARRMS builds a better world through powerful, creative actions.”
  • Rudolf Steiner Foundation: Excellent foundation for investing in good causes, and getting funding for anthroposophy or Steiner-based projects (such as biodynamics, Waldorf schools, etc.)
  • Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education Program:¬† “Since 1988, SARE has funded more than 5,000 projects with grants for farmers, ranchers, extension agents and educators, researchers, nonprofits, students, communities and others.”
