The Minden FFA chapter has been awarded $2,449 as part of the Grants for Growing program. The nationwide program, sponsored by Tractor Supply Company, provides grant funds to local FFA chapters to support the development or improvement of agricultural education projects that enhance the classroom experiences for students through chapter engagement activities.
Minden FFA plans to engage all of its members in hands-on learning by developing a chapter vegetable garden. The vegetables produced will be sold to members of the community and surrounding area. The produce that is not sold will be canned and sold.
