Ag project raising funds for community


The Swan Valley Consumers Co-op has initiated a new community fundraiser this year in which they set aside an approximately one acre plot of land next to their Bulk Petroleum plant, which has been used this growing season to raise a crop of corn.
While the SVCC has donated all of the seed, fertilizer, and other inputs, the Swan River Elks have jumped on board to bring the manpower and equipment needed to benefit from the cash crop.
By planting, tending, and harvesting the corn, the Elks cash in by selling the corn back to the SVCC, which has already been put up for sale in the Food Store.
