Hope is taking root in Butler County.

Community Partnership announced this week it will receive $2,500 in grant money from the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture's Urban Agriculture Infrastructure Grant program.

Sandra Curry, ANR Community Partnership manager, said it's not a lot of money, but it will help Butler County to bring the Seeds to Supper program to Western Pennsylvania.

“It's small, but what we're going to be able to do that is pretty exciting,” Curry said. “We really needed the funds to pay for the plants and the soil we're going to work with.”

Seeds to Supper is a six-week gardening course for beginners, specifically novice, adults. The program targets people who will garden on a budget and those living in an urban setting.
