Esko bee farmer awarded grant
John Skalko of Skalko's Bee Farm in Esko was recently awarded a $7,500 grant from the North Central Region Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education Program (NCR-SARE) for the project, "Skalko Bee Farm."
"This project test whether we can convert a shipping container to use for overwintering bees." Skalko said.
This grant was awarded as part of NCR-SARE's Farmer Rancher Grant Program, which is a competitive grants program for farmers and ranchers who want to explore sustainable solutions to problems through on-farm research, demonstration and education projects.
