The USDA's Sustainable Agriculture Research & Education program has issued a call for proposals to award grants to professional instructors in the field of sustainable agriculture.

The Professional Development Program is a “train the trainer” program, providing funding to agricultural professionals to train Cooperative Extension agents, USDA field personnel, and other ag professionals and educators in areas of sustainable agriculture production practices. Training activities may include seminars, workshops, farm tours, on-farm demonstrations, or the marketing and distributing of training materials. Activities may take place in a single state, multiple states, or throughout (your) region.

The regions currently accepting pre-proposals are:
- Southern (deadline is August 31, 2022. More information here.
- Northeast (deadline is August 2, 2022. More information here.
- Western (deadline is Nov. 9, 2022  More information here.

You can learn more about SARE, at www.sare.org. They regularly offer other kinds of grants as well, so if you're interested, you can sign up for their email notifications there.

I think this would be a tremendous opportunity to spread the word about permaculture. I sure wish our cooperative extension agent had known about it when my kids were in 4-H.
