2018 Farmer Professional Development Application
The Agriculture Community of Interest (Ag COI) is a community-based collaboration actively focused on supporting an economically viable and environmentally sustainable agricultural community in the Puyallup Watershed and Pierce County. It is part of the larger Puyallup Watershed Initiative. You can see more information at www.pwi.org.

The Ag COI has funding in 2018 to help pay for registration fees for conferences, workshops, and trainings for farm businesses in Pierce County and within the Puyallup watershed (including south Enumclaw). Examples include WSU's Cultivating Success program, Focus on Farming, Tilth Annual Conference, and Women in Agriculture. The education must either pertain to the farming or producing the farmer is currently doing, or provide inspiration for future growth within the business.

Up to $400 is available per individual registration, for up to 2 requests per farm. The funding will cover registration fees only (and meals, if they are included in the registration); it will not pay for lodging, transportation, or outside meals. To receive this funding, you must:

1. Submit an application at least 3 weeks in advance of the event;

2. Agree to submit a copy or photo of the workshop agenda or something that validates attendance; and

3. Agree to be available for questions from other farmers within the Puyallup Watershed to learn from your experience.

All requests are approved or denied by a committee. You will receive a response within one week from a committee member indicating that your application has been received, and approval or denial within two weeks. Applications will be considered and funds awarded on a rolling basis until December 31, 2018 or until the 2018 funding runs out (whichever happens first). The Ag COI's intention is to support a minimum of 8 separate farm businesses in 2018 with available funding.

For more information, please contact Jesse Honiker at 253-999-3596.
