A Pleasantville farmer has been selected as the Marion County winner in the America’s Farmers Grow Communities program. The Pleasantville High School FFA will receive $2,500 later this week after David VanRheenen selected the chapter as his favorite nonprofit organization in his program application. Donations to the program are available through the Monsanto Fund which aims to highlight the important contributions farmers make every day to our society.
