Minnesota Farm Bureau Foundation Announces Imagination Stations – My American Farm

The Minnesota Farm Bureau (MFB) Foundation announced the Imagination Stations – My American Farm fundraising drive during the Minnesota Farm Bureau Federation (MFBF) Annual Meeting in Bloomington. The Imagination Stations are My American Farm kiosks. My American Farms is a collective of online educational games developed by the American Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture. The kiosks bring the farm to life on iPads for families to learn more about agriculture.

The MFB Foundation raised $4,800 for the Imagination Stations during the auction held on Friday, November 20 during the MFBF Annual Meeting. The fundraising goal is to raise $15,000 in order to have 10 stations available for county Farm Bureaus to use at county fairs, Breakfast on the Farms, at Food Awareness events at grocery stores, in classrooms and at museums. The MFB Foundation has also received a grant from the Minnesota Soybean Research and Promotion Council in support of this project.
