Off Grid in Color and David Correll earn Bread Riot grants
Chantell Johnson, of Off Grid in Color, and David Correll, Correll Family Farms, have received $500 each, awarded recently by The Bread Riot.
Thanks in part to the Robertson Foundation, the funds will be used to enhance their local businesses.
Johnson now will be able to focus on marketing and expanding the visibility of her pasture-raised livestock.
Correll is excited to purchase a Poly Planter Jr., which saves time and labor by planting seeds directly into the rows of plastic mulch.
Both farmers are regulars at the Salisbury-Rowan Farmers Market, located at 520 S. Main St. The market will be open through mid-December on Saturdays, from 9 a.m. to noon.
The Bread Riot is a local non-profit that links farms to tables by supporting small farmers and providing access to locally produced food.
Other major projects are “Summer Feed,”which this year, provided over 3,000 pounds of produce to school families in food-insecure areas; “Riot at the Brewery,” a fundraiser in conjunction with New Sarum Brewery; and “Share the Harvest” which provides local produce to families during the school year.
“Winter Harvest” is a subscription-based program, open to the public. Twice monthly, Bread Riot sources local products and assembles them into a box for participants.
Items change depending on availability and rangefrom greens to grits, from carrots to cookies.
