Southern Door FFA Alumni receives $5,000 America's Farmers Grow Community Grant

The Southern Door FFA Alumni announced Tuesday that they were the recipient of a $5000 2022 America’s Farmers Grow Communities Grant, a Bayer Fund program.  The grant was awarded to local farmer Richard Olson, who selected the Southern Door FFA Alumni to receive the funds.  Olson says the organization is donating the $5,000 award to the Southern Door School District to use in its greenhouse project.  He notes that the process for procuring the grant began over a year ago.



Olson adds that students in Agriculture classes and working on FFA projects and activities will greatly benefit from the added funds with educational opportunities.   Possible uses for the grant money can be quality growing tables, better ventilation, and/or an advanced watering system in the greenhouse.
