Once again Dave and I will be walking in the NOFA/Mass fundraiser “Organic to Nourish Our Soils and Ourselves.” On November 6th we will join other team members to walk a 5K in Lexington, MA.
NOFA has a special place in our lives. Dave met the farmer he works with part time at a NOFA Summer Conference ~15 years ago. When I decided to join the NOFA staff in 2013, I did so with Dave’s support and encouragement. Through my work with NOFA (and gardening with Dave), I’ve learned so much about how to grow food. I’ve also come to know about so many fascinating efforts across our state and region to bring people together around food, farming and community.
By donating to this fundraiser you are supporting the many amazing programs and initiatives that NOFA/Mass offers. Including the following:
- Restoring carbon to the soil from the atmosphere through organic land management practices
- Training the next generation of organic farmers
- Advocating for public policy in the interest of farmers and consumers at the state and national levels
- Strengthening connections with marginalized communities to improve their access to organic growing and farming resources
I hope you will consider partnering with us in our efforts by making a contribution to the run. Thanks in advance!
Nicole & Dave
P.S. Your donation is tax deductible- every bit helps!
P.P.S. A neat fact about NOFA/Mass is that we have no central office. So when you give to our organization it is going right where it should, to our programming.
