Members of the Berea Ag 4-H club have used a Farm Credit Illinois grant to improve the lives of others.

The club was chosen to receive a $500 grant as one of 50 4-H and FFA groups selected by Farm Credit Illinois. The money was provided so groups could make their communities better places to live.

Berea Ag 4-H decided to improve the landscaping at Berea Christian Church, where it meets, according to club reporter Waylon Armstrong.

A tractor was used to remove old bushes and grasses and low shrubs were planted and mulched. Plants that require less maintenance were added after discussing the project with church members.

“We were glad to be chosen as one of the grant winners to help the church update the landscape,” Armstrong said.
