We need your help!
It takes a whole community to feed the community and WE NEED YOUR HELP!
What better way to say yes to supporting food security for all in the Truckee Meadows, than by giving the gift of cold hard cash to your favorite local non-profit farm!
Every year we grow bigger and bigger, and 2024 will be no exception! But we did not get two important grants we were counting on for next year; AND we're moving into the winter months, which as a seasonal farm, is our slowest time of year for income.
So Giving Tuesday comes at a very important time for us, and we need YOUR support to help cover costs over the winter as we develop next year's exciting & impactful programming.
You can vote with your dollars to help us raise $25,000 so we can continue cultivating our beautiful 5 acre urban farm and growing food for our neighbors.
Here's a few avenues your donation supports in OUR COMMUNITY:
WE DONATED 658 seedlings to 22 community gardens
WE HELPED 6,012 pounds of free produce make its way to 12 community partners
WE COOKED & DELIVERED a whopping 4,056 prepared meals to guests & staff of the Eddy House and two community food pantries
WE EDUCATED ~ 400 people through 20 workshops & tours, teaching valuable skills about cooking, nutrition, garlic growing, propagating seedlings, using medicinal plants, regenerative farming and the food system, and fruit tree grafting
WE STEWARDED 5 acres of historic farmland, cultivating hundreds of varieties of vegetables, culinary herbs, fruits, medicinals, pollinator and perennial plants
WE MINIMIZED our carbon foot print by distributing our food within a 10 mile radius, generated all of our power from the sun, and turned your yard waste into fertile soil for next year’s crops
WE PAID & TRAINED 6 seasonal farm hands/future farmers
WE HOSTED 37 farm stands that increased nutrient dense food access to over 1,600 people including SNAP, WIC & Senior Nutrition Program participants
WE ENGAGED with HUNDREDS of VOLUNTEERS who DONATED ~2,000 hours on the farm, in the kitchen and @ Garlic Fest
The FArm STand Is closed for the season!
Cheers to another successful season ... Each season has it's challenges, and this one was no different, but we couldn't have done it without you nor would we want to!!
We can't thank you enough for all your support and participation.
