Developments in the Lilly Center for Lakes & Streams’s first-ever certification program will be announced during the the 2019 Barn and Business Breakfast at 6:30-8:30 a.m., Tuesday, March 5, at the Manahan Orthopaedic Capital Center at Grace College, Winona Lake, Ind.
Keynote speaker Chuck Surack, founder and CEO of Sweetwater Sound, will present along with Dr. Nate Bosch, director of the Lilly Center for Lakes & Streams, and Tobias Forshtay, program director of agricultural business at Grace College. The event is free but registration is required by Thursday, February 28.
During his presentation, Dr. Bosch will announce developments in the Lilly Center’s first-ever certification program. “The program is designed to promote high-quality agriculture, provide cutting-edge education and, ultimately, protect the 100-plus lakes in Kosciusko County,” Dr. Bosch said. “Farmers play a crucial role in keeping our lakes, and therefore our economy, healthy. This certification helps us publicly recognize the work they do,” he added.
Barn and Business Breakfast is an annual event planned by the Kosciusko County Community Foundation and the Kosciusko County Farm Bureau. It engages local partners and promotes open communication between business and agriculture leaders throughout Kosciusko County. Learn more and register at kcfoundation.org/rsvp. – from grace.edu
