Alabama farmers may give back to local nonprofit organizations by applying for the America’s Farmers Grow Communities program, sponsored by the Monsanto Fund.
Eligible farmers could direct $2,500 to rural nonprofits, including food banks, emergency response organizations and youth agriculture programs. More than $3 million will be awarded in 2018.
Farmers must be 21 years or older and farm at least 250 acres. The enrollment deadline is Nov. 1.
Since 2010, more than 95 donations have benefited Alabama farming communities.
