Answer Plot® Community Gardens
The Land O’Lakes Foundation has identified 21 regions nationwide to host an Answer Plot® Community Garden in 2013. This program, in partnerships with local co-ops, FFA chapters and Land O'Lakes own WinField® agronomists, was created as part of an ongoing effort to help alleviate hunger in rural communities.
The goal of the program is to engage multiple groups in various communities to grow, harvest and donate 150,000 servings of fresh produce to local food shelves.
Throughout the summer FFA students, with support from local co-ops and Land O’Lakes, will plant and harvest produce in a section of their nearby Answer Plot® and donate it to a food pantry in their community.
“We’re proud to build on the success of our Answer Plot® program and partner with local FFA chapters and co-ops by planting healthy produce to feed hungry families in local communities,” said Kevin Eye, director for Answer Plot® & Agronomy-Seed Services. “This program also provides us with a great opportunity to reach out and share our agronomy expertise with students who may become our future farmers.”
