USD 251 North Lyon County has received a sizeable grant to enhance curriculum in several areas.



The America's Farmers Grow Rural Education program through the Bayer Fund has granted the district $25,000. USD 251 will use that money to buy a greenhouse. Once built, the new facility will be used fo grow produce for the school cafeterias. It will also provide lessons for biology, agriculture and family and consumer science classes.

Farmers have directed more than $2.3 million to a variety of non-profit projects through www.americasfarmers.com, including food banks, volunteer fire agencies and education. Between now and Nov. 1, farmers now have a chance to direct $2,500 to their favorite local non-profit venture through the America's Farmers Grow Communities program.
