This grant will not only provide support to our organization, but also the community we serve by allowing us to offer summer activities for students as well as allowing them to gain knowledge of gardening and producing their own food and or food for others who might not have the capability or know how. Throughout the years, the grants given through Bayer Fund have helped strengthen our communities across the United States,” said Al Mitchell, President of Bayer Fund. “We’re proud to be able to provide support to develop programs that help combat challenges such as food insecurity, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) education and support services to patients and families managing an illness or disease.”

Our mission is to fully engulf our students in all aspects of agriculture no matter what background they come from.  We offer classes from 7th-12th grade levels.  Within these classes there are opportunities to branch out in aspects of agriculture such as crop science, animal science, ag mechanics, ag construction, welding, horticulture, and carpentry.  This multitude of facets that are offered by our program are for students who have a willingness to work hard, learn, and contribute to the school, community, and program.
