Photos submitted. A check was presented to Wildwood Hills Ranch in St. Charles by the Ankeny Monsanto site to help fund an educational garden. The $5,000 grant was awarded during a check presentation Tues- day, July 16. Structured activities for children offer opportuni- ties to learn leadership roles and responsibility. Thanks to the Ankeny Monsanto site, the Wild- wood Hills Ranch will now be able to create a gar- den that will serve as an educational tool for camp- ers, using the $5,000 grant from the Monsanto Fund. The organization, a nonprofit in Saint Charles, gives at-risk and disadvan- taged kids the opportunity to enjoy camp programs. Wildwood Hills Ranch will utilize the grant to plant a garden at the ranch, which will serve as an edu- cational tool to teach campers grower responsi- bilities, as well as about healthy food options. By selling the produce at the Des Moines Farmers' Mar- ket, campers also will gain entrepreneurial skills. "Kids from across the state are offered hope and love while being chal- lenged to grow into lead- ers and people of integ- rity," said Ke!sey Smith, Wildwood Hills Ranch's director of annual fund and communication. "These kids want to con- tribute to the communities in which they live." "This facility works with kids from throughout the state and is only funded by donations, said Scott Greenfield, Monsanto geographic marketing manager for Iowa. "I worked with them briefly last year support- ing a fundraising event, but this is a new relation- ship between our site and this organization that we hope to expand upon." This is the first year Wildwood Hills Ranch has been nominated for a Monsanto Fund grant. This year, the Monsanto Fund awarded 127 site grants to nonprofit organi- zations in 26 states. In Iowa alone, 23 site grants were awarded and totaled $204,795. The Monsanto Fund continues to provide support to organizations, such as Wildwood Hills Ranch, to help strengthen communities where farm- ers and Monsanto employ- ees live and work. The Monsanto Fund, the philanthropic arm of the Monsanto Company, is a nonprofit organization dedicated to strengthening the farm communities where farmers and Mon- santo Company employ- ees live and work.
