As we approach the end of 2012, we wanted to take a moment to thank you for your past support of Massaro Community Farm. Your support makes it possible for us to satisfy our mission of feeding people. You can read our full 2012 Food Donation Report here, but below are a few of our numbers:
The number of servings of vegetables we provided to individuals through local hunger relief organizations in 2012.
The pounds of local, organic vegetables we donated to our community this year.
What it costs to provide vegetables to a family of four during a normal growing season.
While we deeply appreciate your monetary donations, there are other ways in which you can support our commitment to ‘Keep Farming; Feed People; Build Community.’
Many of our program offerings are made available through the service of committee and board members. These folks bring a host of skills and backgrounds to our farm - graphic design, finance, legal, environmental education, community engagement – just to name a few. We are always looking for those with skills they think can help maintain the farm operation.
Our regularly occurring events on the farm are made possible through the many efforts of volunteers of all ages who show up to lend a hand. Consider becoming a Friend of the Farm. Volunteering a few hours each year is critical to bringing events to you, such as Celebrate Spring, Dinner on the Farm and Family Fun Day and help us build community, in Woodbridge and beyond.
Tell a Friend!
Simply tell your family, friends and neighbors about all the great things going on at Massaro Community Farm.
