A Tiny Investment in a Local Food Book Gives Local Farmers Bountiful Returns
A $102 grant to Central Wyoming College on August 15, 2022
The Town that Food Saved, by Ben Hewitt, is quintessential reading for aspiring new farmers like those enrolled in Central Wyoming College’s Crop Production Practicum. But the foundational tome is out-of-print, making it hard to find and expensive for students. So a CWC food specialist came to LOR with an idea that would solve this problem in perpetuity: Purchase a set of books that can be reused by CWC students year after year. LOR’s funding helped purchase 10 copies of the book that will allow them to help Lander’s local food systems thrive.
