Grants available to Colusa County non-profits; its time to apply

Following a successful Farm to Fork Dinner, the Colusa Certified Farmers Market contributed $1,200 to the Premier Mushroom non-profit Grant Program.

“This will provide an even greater opportunity for our county’s non-profit groups to participate,” said Jennifer Diaz, Colusa Certified Farmers Market Manager.

The Farm to Fork Dinner held in late June is part of a grassroots effort to connect the community with its local commodities. One of the sponsors of the Farm to Fork Dinner and vendor of the Colusa Farmers Market is Premier mushrooms.

Each year the Premier Mushrooms provides mushrooms for sale at the weekly Colusa Certified Farmers Market where 100 percent of the sales are contributed to the grant program.

By combining the sales of mushrooms and the donation from the Farm to Fork Dinner the grant program has awarded a top prize of $250 to applicants in 2016.
“The fact that Premier donates them solely for the purpose of generating grant funds is very much appreciated,” Diaz added.

John Ashbaugh, Premier Mushrooms CEO, added that their organization is proud to be a part of the community and enjoys giving back whenever it can.

Applications for the 2018 Grant are available by contacting Kathy Craigo-Harteis at (530) 632-1164, or at the Premier Mushroom Inc. office at 2880 Niagra Avenue, Colusa. The deadline to submit the application is Dec. 30 and will be awarded during a special breakfast hosted in mid-January.
