Grow a Leader 4-H Campaign Runs this Week Across Canada

This week, October 13 to 20, 2014, SeCan celebrates its second year of the Grow a Leader program to support 4-H in Canada.

For every bag of selected varieties of soybean seed farmers buy this week, SeCan will donate $1 to 4-H Canada.

According to Jeff Reid, SeCan General Manager, “This is a perfect opportunity for SeCan seed retailers and their customers to make a difference to 4-H in their communities. Most farmers know they’re going to plant soybeans, and ordering during the “Grow a Leader” week has the added bonus of helping to build strong, young leaders in rural Canada.”

Last year the “Grow a Leader” program generated over $41,000 for 4-H in Canada.

The eligible varieties in Eastern Canada are:

  •  Camaro R2                2675 HU
