WVCA receives $25,000 block grant to build second Soil Tunnel Trailer
The West Virginia Conservation Agency has received a $25,000 Specialty Crop Block Grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture to build a second West Virginia Soil Tunnel Trailer.
This second mobile unit will travel the state to bring agriculture and conservation education to communities and children at schools.
WVCA Outreach Specialist Aimee Figgatt said the grant would allow for the construction of a new, larger Soil Tunnel Trailer and help meet high demand at schools and at public events across West Virginia.
The West Virginia Department of Agriculture announced the block grant recipients Oct. 15.
