Thanks to all who came out yesterday for the Farmstead 5K! Despite the last minute change of date, we still got a beautiful, sunny day, and raised $220 for the Vermont Farm Share Program. With NOFA-VT’s matching funds, that means we have $440 more to put towards subsidized CSA shares for families and individuals in our community that otherwise would not be able to afford access to fresh, local food.
It was so great to meet new folks and spend time around the fire outside in the sun. Thanks to the Post Office Cafe in Worcester for donating coffee, and also to our neighbor and my parents for providing quiche and soup for lunch.
Now we march into MARCH! More snow is on its way, but Wednesday is warming up to 40, and we’re sure looking forward to a break in the cold.
Thanks again to all the snowshoers and skiers who helped raise money for the Farm Share Program!
