It's me. Asking for money again to run a 5K for the farmers. This year I'm hoping to beat my speedy 35 min 5K by 5 min and to raise $1000 for NOFA/Mass. There's a lot of great people to give your money to. But if you believe in eating organic food, then this is the premier organization focusing on it.
I've spent my "summer sabbatical," as my future husband calls it, as a farmhand at Simple Gifts Farm in Amherst. I've been making 1/2 the money I made at New England Public Radio and loving every single minute of it (granted I don't have to work on rainy days). My fellow staffers, bosses, apprentices are tireless and incredibly appreciative of the days work. It's a toiling but enriching life, chosen over financial profit.
NOFA/Mass is what got me, and many other people over the past 35 years, into farming. And we are producing good food for the community that can afford it, and the community that can't. Please support us.
