Now in its third full year, Canada’s Farmers Grow Communities is a program aimed at strengthening rural communities by equipping local non-profit organizations with funds to carry out much-needed community work. The aim is for farmers to help improve the lives of many people living in rural communities. The Monsanto Fund, the philanthropic arm of the Monsanto Company, has expanded the Canada’s Farmers program to provide a total of 66 grants, each valued at $2,500, to charitable and not-for-profit groups nominated by farmers. In the past three years, Canadian farmers have applied on behalf of agricultural societies, 4-H clubs, playgrounds, daycares and school projects, community sporting organizations, libraries and health/service groups.
