Missoula business owner wins grant to help others

MISSOULA, Mont. – One small business owner is being awarded a $10,000 grant for going above and beyond to support her local community.

Nici Holt Cline is the founder of Dig This Chick, an online marketplace and community that encourages people to get outside with their families, get dirt under their fingernails and can foods. She teaches people in Montana, and around the world, how to can their own food.

She plans on using this grant for scholarships to help folks with initial costs. Those people will receive a canning kit, Ball mason jars, and access to her workshops and guides.
