Ernie and Elaine Brames, farmers in Dubois County, directed $2,500 to Pine Ridge Elementary through America’s Farmers Grow Communities, sponsored by the BayerFund. As part of its mission, Pine Ridge will use the donation to help fund a half-mile walking trail around the campus for student and community use. Celebrating its 10th year, America’s Farmers Grow Communities partners with farmers to support nonprofit organizations strengthening rural communities.
