We are excited to have just received a City Market Co-op patronage Seedling Grant to fund more of our work on swede midge.
The money comes from City Market members that forget to cash in their refunds as Co-op members. We thank the Board and members for their support. What a cool way to work on the food system!
This is a signal that the local food system is now starting to be concerned enough about swede midge to support research on the solutions! This grant will fund a study whether is a relationship between the number of midge larvae and damage indices.
