2023 MSU Tollgate Farm Operations & Programs
Michigan State University
MSE Extension will use this grant to support core program staff at Tollgate Farm and Education Center: the Public Programs Coordinator and the Education Manager. These staff members develop and oversee field trips, day camps, culturally responsive place-based education, farm-to-school education, stewardship training, a sustainability leadership institute, and numerous other programs at Tollgate. In addition to supporting program staff, the grant will provide salary support for staff that fulfill important positions related to the farm's physical operations (livestock care, hay production, maintenance, etc.).
