Lallemand Plant Care's "Hometown Roots Family Contest " provides a way for growers and their families to give back to the communities that they are part of.
During the contest growers in Manitoba, Saskatchewan, and Alberta had the opportunity to enter by either purchasing Lallemand Plant Care inoculants or by writing an essay explaining what farming means to them and how they would leverage the funds to support their community.
One grower in each province won the opportunity to support their community by selecting a hometown organization to receive a $5,000 donation from Lallemand Plant Care.
Lallemand Plant Care inoculants include LALFIX® START SPHERICAL Granule and LALFIX® PROYIELD LIQUID Soybean.
Alberta winner Kache Miller selected the Milk River Ridge School, Saskatchewan winner Brendan Kuntz selected The Pumpkin Growers - a community fundraiser at Leader, and Travis Brooks, winner in Manitoba, chose the Hamiota Golf Course.
Anne Favre is the Strategic Marketing Director, USA & Canada for Lallemand Plant Care.
She says as a family-owned company, much like the farms we serve, Lallemand is proud to support the communities we are part of.
"With rural roots and rural customers, Lallemand is pleased to have had the opportunity to give back to the rural communities of Milk River, Leader, and Hamiota through this contest."
