ANGOLA, Ind. – Spring signals a time for growth and that's definitely the case as
Trine University and RISE, Inc., agree to partner on a new initiative.
The two are teaming up to establish a garden as part of Trine's farm to fork program
that RISE (Rehabilitation & Industrial Services Enterprises, Inc.) will use for teaching
its clients how to grow food and prepare nutritious meals. Trine will provide the
ground and Bon Appetit Management Co., which provides campus food service, will purchase
the fresh produce for use in student meals and at The Depot Grill.
The idea grew from a grant and day of volunteering offered to RISE by Farm Credit
Mid America in LaGrange to work together on a project.

director, at email@example.com.
