What will the investment do? The seeds of Farmshed’s mission have been planted and the programming has steadily grown. As we transition leadership, we are looking for continued support and investment to help us thrive.
We’ve come so far, and there is still so much more to be accomplished. In 2007 local food enthusiasts started a grassroots movement to support a regional food system while meeting Fridays for breakfast. In 2011 a neglected greenhouse was purchased and given new life as a local food hub. Today, Farmshed’s efforts in promoting local food systems are extensive. Here are some of the ways Farmshed is working to make a resilient local food community:
Farmshed’s Board of Directors and Staff are producing a three year strategic plan, helping ensure that Farmshed will continue to thrive under the leadership of the next Executive Director. The support of donors will help see that to fruition.
Donors from this campaign will be invited to a Local Food Investor Social on August 21st from 6-8pm. Small bites and beverages will be provided as we get together to reflect on the past, celebrate the present, and embrace the future.
