Supporting innovative agriculture and horticulture programs


2020 Seed Money For The Future

  • Tuesday, December 31, 2019, 12:15 AM - 11:45 PM

In connection with the retirement of Monika Roth, Agriculture Program Leader, in 2018 after 40 years of extension programming, the SEED MONEY FOR THE FUTURE fund was established to continue her legacy of innovative agriculture and horticulture programming at Cornell Cooperative Extension of Tompkins County.

SEED MONEY FOR THE FUTURE will support a new mini-grant program to fund CCE-Tompkins initiatives that address agriculture, gardening and local foods needs in our community. Examples of investments that have enriched our community with Monika's involvement are: Ithaca Children's Garden, local Farmers' Markets, Master Gardener Volunteers, Citizen Pruner Volunteers, Spring Plant Sale, Finger Lakes Culinary Bounty, Community Beautification Program, Guide to Farming in New York State publication, Farmland Protection, and more.
