Blue Heron Middle School in Port Townsend has been awarded a $2,000 grant from CHS Northwest for the school’s orchard through the CHS Country Operations Seeds for Stewardship grant program.
“Rural communities work hard to keep people safe while building and developing tomorrow’s leaders,” Don Eucker general manager, CHS Northwest, said in an announcement of the grant.
“We are thankful for those who are dedicated to making sure our communities continue to be strong, safe places for our customers and employees to live and work together,” he added. “Their great work helps build connections that empower agriculture and our communities.”
Since 2019, CHS locations across the U.S. have awarded more than $340,000 to local organizations through the company’s Seeds for Stewardship program.
CHS officials said the grants bestowed in 2020 will be used to help protect firefighters, support students in agriculture-related education and leadership projects, sustain local 4-H and FFA groups, and build gathering places where 4-H participants and community members can meet.
CHS Northwest, a Lynden-based business, delivers agronomy, energy, feed and retail products and services to agricultural producers in Washington and Oregon.
