Wello and Community Partners Receive AHW Seed Grant to Build Hmong Farmers’ Capacity
Wello is thrilled to announce we have been selected as a recipient of an Advancing a Healthier Wisconsin (AHW) Seed Grant through the Medical College of Wisconsin!
Through a partnership between Wello, the Asian American Resource Center, and Seasonal Harvest LLC., this grant will support a project that aims to increase participation in wholesale markets in northeast Wisconsin by Hmong farmers by addressing gaps in training; knowledge of sustainable farming practices; technology and equipment use; and language barriers.
This project will also pilot a mobile farmers market in the summer of 2023 focusing on foods from Hmong producers.
