Congratulations West Central Area Schools FFA!
The 2023 Homegrown Giving award winner for the MDFC region
The produce grown in the greenhouse will be donated to local Grant County food shelves to provide citizens with nutritious food. With the donation from ACH Seeds, WCA plans to purchase tools and equipment to support food processing, storage and handling. The money will also help WCA expand their school’s agriculture program curriculum to include education in food science, focusing on both processing and preservation. WCA plans to combine education, food production and processing to create more sustainable and resilient food systems in Grant County.
