Montreal, Quebec, Canada, Sept. 06, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Three rural community groups are set to receive $5,000 in financial support, as Lallemand Plant Care today announced the winners of the Hometown Roots Family Contest in Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba.
One grower from each province had the opportunity to support their community by selecting an organization in their hometown to receive a $5,000 contribution from Lallemand Plant Care. Alberta winner Kevin Slemko chose Hussar Community Hall, Saskatchewan winner Mike Fittkau chose Cando Cemetery Fund, and Manitoba winner Darren Rozdeba chose Strathclair Ag Society.
“At Lallemand, we recognize the importance of communities – large or small, they can provide countless opportunities for growth and experience. The Lallemand Hometown Roots Family Contest is a way for us to give back to growers and their communities,” says Colin Sebulsky, Marketing Director, Lallemand Plant Care.
During the contest, from November 2021 to May 2022, growers in Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba had the opportunity to participate by purchasing Lallemand Plant Care inoculants, including LALFIX® SPHERICAL Granule for pulses and soya or LALFIX® PROYIELD LIQUID Soybean, or write an essay explaining what farming means to them and how they would leverage funds to support their community.
“As a family-run organization with rural roots and rural customers, Lallemand Plant Care is pleased to have had the opportunity to give back to the rural communities of Hussar, Cando and Strathclair through this competition,” adds Sebulsky.
