A couple of La Crosse area teachers are getting cash from the Wisconsin Farm Bureau to help them carry out farm-related projects.
The Bureau’s “Ag in the Classroom” program is giving $100 grants to 12 teachers around the state.
Amy Mather from Northern Hills School in Onalaska is one grant winner.
Mather will use the Farm Bureau funding to buy supplies for a ‘patio gardening’ program, to help her students learn the skills to grow food in gardens at their homes.
A Black River Falls High School teacher, Sarah Halverson, also gets a Farm Bureau grant.
Halverson is teaching a child development class, where students will plan lessons for 4-year-old kindergarten students around the process of making ice cream.
