The Texas Farm Bureau’s Learning from the Ground Up program is helping prepare local students for success in whatever field they choose.
Grants of up to $500 are awarded through the program to help schools and organizations that work with youth start new gardens or greenhouses or make improvements to existing gardening spaces.
Brazoria County Juvenile Justice Alternative Education Program and Brazoria County Master Gardeners are two Texas organizations to receive grant funding through the program.
At the JJAEP facility, the funds will be used to grow their garden and expand their agriculture education program. Brazoria County Master Gardeners will use the funds they received to help schools attend their “Be Something at BEES” field trip program.
