Providence Farm Collective has gratefully accepted a $1,500 Farm Credit Northeast AgEnhancement Grant to support agriculture education efforts at Providence Farm Collective. Farm Credit Northeast AgEnhancement supports programs, project and events that are intended to strengthen agriculture, commercial fishing and the forest products sector in the Northeast. This program is a combined effort of Farm Credit East, Yankee Farm Credit and CoBank.
