Show Nature’s Generosity During Our 2018 Annual Appeal!

  
      


Show Nature’s Generosity During Our 2018 Annual Appeal!

 

In the spirit of nature we ask for your support. Nature provides us with so much abundance, one small plant can produce thousands of seeds. The earth is always giving! Our work at the farm helps to keep the planet healthy and nurtures us with food to keep our bodies and spirit alive.

Your “seed” of financial support, big or small will help to start another year of “growth” for us. What it takes to be a healthy, thriving farm is to have hope for the next crop. To plant a seed is the first leap of faith.

We are incredibly lucky to have this little farm practicing organic and biodynamic principles of farming in its effort to nurture the soil and community.

Our annual fund drive is still in need of community generosity. Please consider giving of a gift of financial  support. In return, we will be able to continue to provide nutrient rich organic produce. Your gift also supports nature education programs and community building events.

 

Let us all be as generous as nature!

Together, we’ll make a soothing and healing calendula salve. Calendula has anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory, and antibacterial properties that may make it useful in healing wounds and treating skin irritations. 

 

We’ll be serving light refreshments too, so come join in the fun!

Giving Tuesday was a Great Success!

 

Wow! What an incredible day! Thanks to all who donated during our Giving Tuesday Facebook campaign. We are so thankful to our generous community!

 

We still have work to do! We’re almost there, but still need your help to meet our goal. We’re $12,000 shy of our goal. Remember every gift is doubled!

 

You can still help!  Every donation helps, no matter how large or small.  Click a button below to make a tax-deductible donation.

          

If we get $50,000 in donations we will have $100,000 to start with in our 2019 growing season!

 

The farm closes during the winter months, so it’s important to have funds in place to start up again in the spring. We need to provide salaries, purchase seed and field supplies, and cover overhead costs. 

The farm had good success this year. We’re on the right track! We’ve impacted the community with healthy food, educational experiences and outdoor events. 

 

Please consider making a year-end, tax deductible donation to help keep our local Crossroads Farm alive and available for all to enjoy. This campaign is a wonderful way to double the impact of your donation.

We greatly appreciate our friends who have helped support the farm through volunteerism, donations and simply by being a regular patron of the Farm. Every little bit helps us keep the Farm open and operational for our local community to continue to enjoy.
