What’s the SFA Greenhouse? It’s small budget initiative geared to assist collectors in documenting the food stories in their local areas, with an emphasis on film and multi-media projects. To apply for SFA Greenhouse funds, please send us a letter describing your project, its importance, relevant information about costs and timetables for completion, as well examples of previous work or work already completed in support of your proposed project. Please send your letter to the SFA's oral historian, Amy Evans Streeter, at acevans@olemiss.edu. And please know that when we talk of money, we’re talking small potatoes, not monster rutabagas.
