A North Judson farmer was selected as a winner in the America’s Farmers Grow program. The America’s Farmers Grow Communities Program is sponsored by the Monsanto Fund that supports farming communities by offering farmers the opportunity to register to win $2,500 for their favorite community charity. Recipients could include FFA, 4-H, school or other civic organization. The program covers 1,204 counties across 38 states and winners are selected at random.
David Lambert is representing Starke County as its winner and he has elected to give his $2,500 to the St. Peter Lutheran School. Mr. Lambert will present a large ceremonial check to the school on Monday, March 7th at 12:30 p.m. CT during the grandparent’s day celebration.
To date, more than 60,000 farmers have participated in the program. The Monsanto Fund expects to invest more than $3 million in local communities.
