Trac­tor Sup­ply Com­pany is sup­port­ing Ge­or­gia’s next gen­er­a­tion of agri­cul­tural lead­ers through the 3rd an­nual Grants for Grow­ing pro­gram. This year, Ge­or­gia Trac­tor Sup­ply cus­tomers do­nated $23,700 to fund lo­cal, youth-led agri­cul­ture projects made pos­si­ble by the ini­tia­tive.

Trac­tor Sup­ply Com­pany awarded eight grants to Ge­or­gia FFA chap­ters that re­quested fund­ing to build or en­hance sus­tain­able ed­u­ca­tional projects that will fur­ther their stu­dents’ un­der­stand­ing of agri­cul­ture. Grants will help fund projects in­clud­ing a live­stock show ring for LaFayette High School, a hon­ey­bee ini­tia­tive and a project pro­vid­ing free-stand­ing pantries for com­mu­nity mem­bers in need.

“Grants for Grow­ing not only al­lows us to in­vest in Ge­or­gia com­mu­ni­ties, but also in­vest in Ge­or­gia youth who are the future of the agri­cul­ture industry,” said Christi Korzekwa, a se­nior vice pres­i­dent at Trac­tor Sup­ply.
