The Knox County Farm Bureau Foundation is proud to announce the creation of the Agriculture in the Community Grant! In 2022, the Knox County Farm Bureau Foundation adapted a new Mission Statement, “sustaining and promoting the growth of agriculture in Knox County through education and philanthropy.” The Foundation has also done strategic planning with a goal of offering community grants to further the agriculture industry. These grants are available to teachers, FFA Chapters & 4-H Clubs, and community groups wanting to signify the importance of agriculture in Knox County.
Teachers- have a lesson idea that goes beyond the usual Ag in the Classroom curriculum?
