Published 10:05 am Monday, September 19, 2022
Polk County Farm Bureau gifted a grant to Kalie McCrain of Polk Central Elementary School for her “Raised Garden Bed Hands-on Learning” project. The project will help students in Kindergarten through 5th grade, teaching them the life cycle of a plant and how to grow plants and vegetables. Students will also compare different types of matter and the process of transitioning from one state to the other agriculturally.
The project will be hands-on in teaching students how to grow their own home gardens and food in their backyards. Farm Bureau thanks Kalie for her submission to the “Going Local Grant” through Farm Bureau’s Ag in the Classroom. The Polk County board of directors is excited to grant this gift to the students of Polk Central Elementary. They look forward to following the progress of the project and watching the students grow.
