We are growing our own farmers for the Paola Farmers Market. We believe it is critical for young people to know and be part of where their food comes from.

So we are thrilled to be offering our Seed Money Scholarship for 2020, open to Paola High School students. Applications are being accepted during the month of March (3/1/2020 - 3/31/2020).

This scholarship awards:

  • A budget of $250 to create and manage a small garden (seeds, plantings, fertilizer, gloves, tools, storage, packaging, etc.).
  • A waiver of the $50 registration fee for the Paola Farmers Market.
  • A vendor booth/table at Music and the Market.
  • Growing guidance and support from the Discover Historic Paola sponsors.
