The Department of Horticulture at Cornell’s College of Agriculture and Life Sciences (CALS) requests proposals for innovative research, teaching and extension/outreach projects involving organics and sustainability in farm and food systems, and managed landscapes including gardens and green spaces.

Short proposals are requested from Cornell staff and students, Cornell Cooperative Extension educators, and New York farmers. Project proposals will be reviewed and considered for funding up to a maximum $12,000 level, but PIs are encouraged to leverage and combine TSF funds with other sources of financial support to foster more ambitious project.

Proposals will be evaluated and prioritized for funding by a review panel of Cornell faculty, staff, students, organic farmers and other qualified experts. Project leaders of all successful proposals will be notified in late January, 2014.
