Worth Co. Farmer Wins $2,500 for Worth County 4-H
Brett Hardy, a Grant City farmer, was selected as a winner in the America’s Farmers Grow Communities program, which gave farmers the opportunity to win $2.500 for their favorite local nonprofit organization. The Monsanto Fund sponsors the program, and winning farmers designate a local nonprofit organization to benefit from the donations. Hardy designated the Worth County MU Extension 4-H program to receive the donation.
Hardy said he is very excited to have been selected as the winner for Worth County. “Grow Communities is a really good program to give back to the community.”
Karla Parman, MU Extension 4-H Youth Program Associate, said “We are very excited because we are the smallest county in the state of Missouri. We don’t have a lot of money-making projects, and we can use the money to grow our 4-H program. We really appreciate it.”Posted on Mar 14, 2011.
