Youngsters receiving care at Shodair Children’s Hospital now have a greenhouse to further their farm-to-plate learning thanks to Ace Hardware local owners and managers from across the state who donated and installed a greenhouse Tuesday.

Ace Hardware stores in Montana raised money for Shodair Aug. 4-6 through their annual Bucket Campaign. This is one of several fundraisers the 54 Ace Hardware stores host every year.
“We are proud to be part of this project at Shodair as their mission is so near and dear to our hearts,” Haley Dowdell, Ace Montana dealer group leader, said in a news release.
