Southern Region SARE Sustainable Agriculture Training Program - 2019-20 Model State Program - Program Assistant

Grants and Contracts Details


Dr. Paul Vincelli is the UK State Coordinator and Brett Wolff as the Kentucky Program Assistant. In addition to his leadership of the program, Dr. Vincelli has brought expertise in the areas of climate change, cover crops, and GMO technology. Brett continues to act as a networker for the program, identifying new opportunities for collaboration and new venues to share SSARE resources. In our proposed programming this year, we have decided to focus on a topic we have not previously covered in our SARE programming: farm transition. We also plan to work with one of the most impactful nonprofit organizations in our state, the Kentucky Center for Agricultural and Rural Development (KCARD) to promote the SARE program, resources, and grant programs. While the bulk of programming costs associated with the Third Thursday Thing are included in the Kentucky State University proposal, we do provide support to their monthly workshops and have included travel support here. Finally, Dr. Vincelli is regularly asked to present on sustainability]related topics across the state including agent and ag professional trainings. As always, we plan to continue promoting the SARE website, grant programs, and other resources throughout the year.
