Rockingham Cooperative is committed to providing additional support to the communities we serve through the Agriculture Production Education Grant Program, in which we extend grant funding to agricultural education programs in our service area. The grant program allows our cooperative to support the growth of agricultural education programs and, in turn, invest in the teaching of production agricultural practices in the communities we live in and serve for future generations.

Mission of the Program

Through the Agriculture Production Education Grant program, Rockingham Cooperative continues to invest in the agriculture education programs in our service area, providing exceptional hands-on learning opportunities for youth to learn best-practices and gain valuable experience on industry leading production agriculture standards.
