Precision Ag students pay it forward

Lake Region State College Precision Ag students grew and are donating farm-fresh food to our local food pantry, the Hope Center, thanks to the help of WinField United and Land O'Lakes!

"We are just the delivery guys while the students are in classes," said Preston Sundeen, faculty and director of the Dakota Precision Ag Center. "Students in the Precision Ag Club will be making more drop offs this fall!"

The produce comes from a garden tended by students. Students of the Precision Ag Club at Lake Region State College have spent the past spring and summer months planting and tending to a garden with the goal to donate the harvested produce to the Hope Center in Devils Lake.

Winfield Ag Solutions and Land O’Lakes Foundation supported the club to purchase supplies to grow a variety of produce that would eventually be donated to the Hope Center.

The Precision Ag Club was started a few years ago to become active in the community. He says they plan to continue to participate in projects like this, travel and tour various agricultural plants and equipment businesses, as well as being active in the industry.

“Our mission is to be involving the community,” Sundeen said.  “We have over a dozen students that really want to make this an active club and volunteer their time in the Lake Region, as well as visit and see different parts of North Dakota’s agricultural industries.
