Critter Barn Receives Grant from Reeve Foundation

Written by Paul R. Kopenkoskey on . Posted in Local

critterCritter Barn in Zeeland, an educational farm dedicated to teaching about farming and agriculture for people of all ages and all abilities through the miracles in nature found at the farm, was awarded a grant as part of the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation National Paralysis Resource Center 2021 2nd Cycle Direct Effect Quality of Life grants.

Critter Barn will use the grant award for purchasing seven adaptive tricycles and five activity chairs with trays from the Rifton Equipment Company, who specialize in designing and producing adaptive equipment for persons with disabilities.

""The Critter Barn is a educational farm that teaches children agriculture, how our food is raised and how creation sustains us because that was the plan from the Garden of Eden," Mary Rottschafer, Critter Barns' founder and executive director told West Michigan Christian News earlier. "We minister to a lot of children who are less fortunate or are challenged. We give God the glory for the farming community and help kids experience the miracles of the farm, which are unlimited in number throughout the year."
