LAKEPORT, Calif. – The Lake County Chapter of California Women for Agriculture (LCCWA) is offering Lake County classrooms the opportunity to apply for $100 mini-grants to fund agriculture-related educational projects.
All Lake County classrooms from kindergarten through grade eight are eligible to apply; the projects must simply have an agriculture-focus.
LCCWA actively educates their members and the public about matters concerning agriculture at both the county and state levels.
The mini-grant program is designed to assist programs that give students a hands-on experience to learning what goes into producing food and the important roll agriculture plays in their and everyone’s daily life.
Some of the school programs awarded mini-grants are the Kelseyville Kids Garden Club, the Mt. Vista Middle School Garden Project and the Cobb Mountain Elementary School Garden Club.
“We want to get the word out about this opportunity for the 2014-15 school year,” said LCCWA President Sharron Zoller.
The mini-grant application can be found on the LCCWA Web site at www.lakecountycwa.org under the “Scholarship” tab.
The one-page application is due Sept. 15.
