Iowa teen Lauren Schroeder grew 7,000 pounds of produce with a market value of around $15,000 and donated it all to food banks and non-profits in the Quad Cities area. She received a half-acre of land from her parents and took studies of agronomy and gardening to heart. With the help of her younger siblings, she put in 2 to 3 hours of work every day. She received grants from Future Farmers of America and plans to donate 20,000 pounds of vegetables by the time she graduates next June.
