Rhonda is transitioning a one acre of tobacco field into a pick-your-own blueberry business. The grant will also assist the family in updating the greenhouse for a variety of garden vegetables. The income from the greenhouse sales will help keep this family economically viable in the future.

Expected income totals $3,200 in the next 2 years.

Because of this grant "We will be able to diversify our crop production during different seasons so that our income will be a little steadier."
