On the Local Level Spring 2019
Take a look at what’s happening with the North Carolina Farm Bureau across the state this spring:
Raised Beds for Rowan County
Landis Elementary School now has a new garden. Rowan County Farm Bureau and the county Extension office promoted the Friend of Farmer grant through the Rowan-Salisbury School System. Board members donated funds for the school to start and maintain a raised-bed garden on campus, and they coordinated with teachers on the installations. Thanks to the grant, these elementary school students are now able to get hands-on experience as they learn about growing tomatoes, squash, corn and more.
