BENEFITING: FARMERS MARKET COALITION
For my 47th birthday, I am asking anyone that was thinking of buying me a drink, or a card or something else to instead support my favorite cause-farmers markets. As you all know, I am always working on supporting farming, markets and the organizers who make them happen. The money will go to the national organization that supports markets everywhere, Farmers Market Coalition which works closely with Crescent City Farmers Markets, my own beloved markets, which will also get some birthday money from me for their yearly fundraiser. Maybe you think that farmers markets are doing just fine and don't need your help, but trust me, these folks do a whole lot with very little and need assistance to grow these healthy town squares.
