THE STORY:

For 2012, we’re looking to raise $25,000 to help cover farm costs, bills, tools and to cover contract staffing and help us obtain our own 501(c)(3) status. We’ve grown to three farms and we can’t wait to have them all under production. In addition, we’re launching a bike team and have big plans for an innovative skill share series for 2012/2013. We just need your help to make it all possible.

A NOTE ABOUT THIS YEARS RIDE:

At Alleycat Acres, we’re an organization that exists for a number of reasons, powered by people (and bikes). To all of us, we see food as a powerful vehicle for change — from both a social and environmental standpoint. And since 2010, we’ve partnered with a number of individuals, schools and community organizations to help construct 2 farms on land that would otherwise sit empty.

One of our guiding philosophies is that of Ubuntu — an African philosophy that roughly translates to I Am Because You Are. And issues we see facing our farming counterparts across the globe are issues we also face here on the home front — issues created because of the inequalities in the food system. Indeed, we are all in this together. And together we can make it change.

For 2012, we’re headed down to the United People’s Farm in Auburn, a farm incubator program that works with Somali refugee families, assisting in the transition of agricultural and business skills in our region. Earlier this year, we hosted a crop mob and more than 20 folks joined us in a day of work on the farms — a day that most of us will never forget. By selecting UPF as this year’s destination, we aim to draw a connection between our work and the work of UPF — connecting urban and rural in a cross cultural setting.
