Rooted Farmers is offering grants to developing communities of growers.

Our team has been working closely with dozens of regional groups across the country who are at various stages of forming or growing a cooperative/collective, and we continue to be inspired by your passion and determination. This grant is designed to assist your group financially using micro-capital awards, and provide mentorship opportunities as you navigate the ins and outs of growing your flower community.

Grants range from $500 - $1,500 in a reimbursement-structured funding opportunity.
