We are now in the final 6 months of our Cultivating Success: Farm and Market Websites Project funded through USDA’s Farmers Market Promotion Program (FMPP) grants. We’ve successfully created a lot of new websites for markets and farms but we need your help to complete the project!
We are still accepting submissions from people who would like a website created for their farm or farmers market – but only until August 15th!
This is an amazing opportunity as participants will have their websites created for them for free and also have their first year’s hosting and domain fees paid for by the Federation. In order to participate, you will need to gather all the information needed to create your website together and submit a Farm Website Design Request or Market Website Design Request depending on whether you are a farm or farmers market.
Please do not submit incomplete forms as this can delay the process. Spaces are limited and the sites will be created on a first come first served basis so please complete the form as soon as possible. Please also forward this email on to anyone who you think might be interested in this program so we make sure to meet our goal to create 100 sites. Remember, the websites come with training videos and a guidebook on how to maintain and update your site so ANYONE can participate in this program, even if you have limited tech skills or previously thought it would be too hard to understand WordPress.
Contact [email protected] with any questions about submitting the form or enrolling in the program.
