Project RED is a Michigan Farm Bureau service project, offered free to participating schools on April 28th & May 1st. This event helps children gain an appreciation for Michigan Farmers and their Agriculture-how they produce food and fiber for students and their families to consume, while protecting the environment. Stations are presented by Bowers Farm, students, staff and professional farmers from the county. Lunch is provided for all day workers and dress is casual. Project R.E.D. has always been a wonderful day for both the students and the adult volunteers! For more information, please contact LaRea Kremhelmer at larealea@comcast.net

If you are interested in volunteering, please call the county office at 248-889-6100!
