There is still time for area farmers to help their local communities grow. Linda Arnold from the Monsanto Corporation says The Monsanto America’s Farmers Grow Communities program directs $2,500 to non‑profit organizations in their local communities.
She says since this program started three years ago more than seven point two million dollars has been donated to more than 2900 farmers in rural America. Arnold adds a winner will be chosen in each eligible county in January of next year.
Last year, Steve and Sue Norman from Washington County chose the Washington County Fair Association to receive the grant. A link to the applications that are due November 30th can be found here.
