The Agriculture Division at Lake Land Community College has received a $2,500 donation as part of the America’s Farmers Grow Communities program, sponsored by Monsanto.
The Grow Communities program partners with farmers to support nonprofit organizations in their local communities. The program has given more than $29 million since its inception, including more than $3 million this year.
Lake Land Agronomy Instructor/Farm Manager Mark Niemerg says the award is a reflection of the entire Agriculture Division.
Each year, farmers submit information for a chance to direct a $2,500 donation to a nonprofit they care about in their community. The organizations reflect the makeup and character of rural America, including emergency response organizations, schools, youth agriculture programs, food banks and many others.
The America’s Farmers campaign highlights the importance of modern U.S. Agriculture through communications and community outreach programs that partner with farmers to impact rural America.
