LOUISIANA – A local farm family has released $2,500 to the Louisiana R-II school district through a program that allows farmers to back good causes in their communities.

America’s Farmers Grow Communities, the source of the grant, is funded by the Bayer Fund, formerly the Monsanto Fund, a philanthropy associated with the biotechnology company.

The money will go to technology upgrades in LHS’s agriculture programs according to Superintendent Todd Smith.
