Green City Market awarded two grants.

10/21/2009

We are thrilled to announce that on October 16, the Illinois Department of Agriculture announced that Green City Market has been awarded two grants amounting to $25,000.  GCM is one of 28 Illinois funded projects and the only organization to receive multiple grants.  Dollars from these grants will go toward promoting the Illinois Specialty Crop Industry through the Know Your Food . . . Know Your Farmer brochure (this is a matching grant resulting from the recent USDA award); creating marketing materials to educate Chicagoans about the Heritage and Heirloom Project, Club Sprouts and Locavore Challenge; funding the GCM weekly newsletter; and assisting with the development of farmer-chef online communications.
