Grants from the Montana Farmers Union to Youth Agriculture Programs

Three Central Montana Schools will be funded by the Montana Farmers Union starting at $10,000

To expand their gardens, Chouteau County Schools receive $1,500

This contributes to their food service program by purchasing supplies and signage.

This project is designed to teach students the basics of soil science as well as how to implement simple irrigation systems.

Jessica Myers, North Star's Family & Consumer Sciences teacher, submitted the grant.

The best addition to a school is a year-round greenhouse.

"The Hi-Line is well-known for its ability to grow wheat and other crops.

All ages will be able to use the greenhouse at the school.

Schweitzer stated, "Our goal to get back to the point where we grow more food locally and have it processed locally to be eaten locally is our goal."

It could be in a greenhouse. There are many aspects to agriculture that don't require a tractor.
