GARDEN BASED NUTRITION GRANT FUNDS AVAILABLE FOR LOCAL SCHOOLS AND AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAMS

This year the coalition will be accepting grant applications for schools, afterschool programs, and summer programs that serve students in Oneida and Vilas County. Acceptable activities to apply for include fresh fruit and vegetable taste testing, growing plants, starting a garden, and other activities that support increasing fresh fruit or vegetable access or increasing awareness of where food comes from. These programs are designed to give students a hands-on learning opportunity to improve their knowledge of nutrition and food preference.

Applicants will have the opportunity to determine how they would like to incorporate a garden based nutrition program, and whether it will be a small scale or large scale project. A small scale project will be anything that requires $500 or less to complete. A large scale project will be anything that requires more than $500 but less than $1,500 to complete.
The grant will be open from March 1 – March 31, 2015. Applicants will be notified of their status on April 15, 2015. The project period will then run from April 15, 2015 – December 31, 2015.

JOHN MCCUTCHEON - COMING TO CAMPANILE CENTER (Minocqua)
COMING TO CAMPANILE CENTER - MARCH 11 7:00 P.M.
Wisconsin native, John McCutcheon, will return 'home' when he heads to the Campanile Center in Minocqua on March 11th. He brings with him his songs, stories and various instruments to share a delightful evening that all will be sure to enjoy!
John McCutcheon has emerged as one of our most respected and loved folksingers. As an instrumentalist, he is a master of a dozen different traditional instruments, most notably the rare and beautiful hammered dulcimer. His songwriting has been hailed by critics and singers around the globe. His thirty recordings have garnered him every imaginable honor including seven Grammy nominations. He has produced over twenty albums of other artists, from traditional fiddlers to contemporary singer-songwriters to educational and documentary works. His books and instructional materials have introduced budding fiddle players to the joys of their own musicality. And his commitment to grassroots political organizations has put him on the front lines of many of the issues important to communities and workers.
Even before graduating summa cum laude from Minnesota's St. John's University, this Wisconsin native literally "headed for the hills," forgoing a college lecture hall for the classroom of the eastern Kentucky coal camps, union halls, country churches, and square dance halls. His apprenticeship to many of the legendary figures of Appalachian music imbedded a love of not only home-made music, but a sense of community and rootedness. The result is music ... whether traditional or from his huge catalog of original songs .. with the profound mark of place, family, and strength. It also created a storytelling style that has been compared to Will Rogers and Garrison Keillor.
The Campanile Center for the Arts is located in downtown Minocqua at the corner of Milwaukee and Flambeau Sts. Tickets are Adults $20, and Students $10 and may be purchased by visiting our website: campanilecenter.org, by calling 715-356-9700, or at the door. Auditorium doors will open at 6:30 PM. This will truly be a concert not to be missed.
