US: Ohio Local Schools Receives $10,000 Grant to Build New Greenhouse

A local Ohio School District is building a new greenhouse for its agricultural science students. Thanks to the support of local farmers and America’s Farmers Grow Rural Education, Fayette Local Schools received a $10,000 grant to add a greenhouse to their agricultural education lab. The teachers and students will utilize their new greenhouse in their science and FFA classes.

America’s Farmers Grow Rural Education, sponsored by the Monsanto Fund, offers farmers the chance to nominate a local public school district, which can then compete for a grant of up to $25,000 to enhance math and/or science education. More than 1,150 nominated school districts submitted applications. The Monsanto Fund will invest $2.3 million through America’s Farmers Grow Rural Education grants this year.

“The opportunity that America’s Farmer Grow Rural Education grant provides to Fayette Local Schools allows us to deliver hands-on educational opportunities to our students,” said Erik Belcher, Fayette Local School Superintendent. “Students will also be engaged in service learning projects that will benefit the community, as well as enhance our curriculum. This grant will directly benefit our school and community for years to come.”
