COVID-19 in Our Community
All of our communities are experiencing the impact of the COVID-19 Coronavirus threat. Discover Historic Paola is monitoring the situation as it evolves, and we will determine what impact it may have on operating Music and the Market and the summer schedule.
Our community is working to help each other and get through this time. Please visit our Facebook Page to keep connected and find ways you can help or get help.
Our Seed Money Scholarship
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.
