      A Mitchell County farmer is helping sprout new possibilites for the Mitchell County 4-H Club.According to the press release issued by Mosanto Fund, which sponsors Grow Communities, the organization gives farmers the opportunity to win $2,500 for their favorite local nonprofit organizations. Kent Grogan was the winning farmer in Mitchell County. Grogan recognized his local 4-H club TMs need for funding and directed the donation to the Mitchell County 4-H.

      My wife is the 4-H coordinator and she does a great job helping to develop the future leaders of our community, Grogan said. I wanted to help her give these children educational opportunities that will help them to develop leadership skills.

      The organization will use the $2,500 to help purchase a new 4-H van.

      Our 4-H was in great need of this donation, said Jennifer Grogan, Mitchell County 4-H county extension agent. It's going to help us in a lot of ways and we are just so incredibly appreciative.

      In a ceremony held on April 10, Kent Grogan got the chance to present the Mitchell County 4-H with the $2,500 donation. Over $70,000 total has been donated to non profits in Georgia and a full list can be obtained from www.growcommunities.com
