More than 300 bottles of home-brewed beer will compete for top honors next week as part of the Second Annual Battle of the Brews at the Delaware State Fair, sponsored by the Delaware Department of Agriculture. The July 21 event is Delaware’s only Beer Judge Certification Program-sanctioned event, where professional judges rate the work of home brewing enthusiasts in the First State.
The Delaware Fresh app – a mobile guide to local farmstands and farmers’ markets marking its first year – has been updated and refreshed for the new season, available on both iPhone and Android platforms.
The Delaware Forest Service is now accepting applications for its annual Urban & Community Forestry Grant Program, which has awarded over $1 million to more than 200 Delaware communities and organizations since the program’s inception in 1991. Municipalities and homeowner groups can apply for up to $5000 in matched funding for projects that increase tree canopy, develop and implement tree management plans, remove hazardous trees or use trees to mitigate storm water runoff. Each applicant must match its grant on a 50-50 cost-share basis with either nonfederal funds or in-kind services (volunteer time, staff time, etc.).
