Educational Mini-Grant Awarded to Marion County Farm Bureau

 

Kim Jones of Marion County accepts an award of recognition from Vicki Bryant, chair of the Kentucky Farm Bureau state Women’s Committee. 

Louisville, KY (December 1, 2017) – Marion County Farm Bureau was honored as one of six recipients of a Kentucky Farm Bureau (KFB) Educational Mini-Grant. All six recipients were recognized during KFB’s annual meeting in Louisville.

The Mini-Grant is a special project of the Kentucky Farm Bureau Women’s Program and administered through the Kentucky Farm Bureau Education Foundation. One-time grants of up to $500 are offered to county Farm Bureaus on a competitive basis to help fund projects that result in increased agricultural literacy. Priority is given to those programs demonstrating a need for financial support.

Marion County Farm Bureau was recognized for hosting a Farm to Fork Field Day. The event hosted more than 285 fifth grade students. They were put through different educational stations, including: farm equipment, grains, farm livestock, and honey bees.

In addition to Marion County Farm Bureau’s award, Mini-Grants were also given to the Farm Bureaus in Boyle, Fayette, Lewis, McCracken, and Webster counties.
