A Message to Our Community: COVID-19

2019 AF
  


A note to our community

We are all in this together!

We are continuing to monitor the Covid-19 situation and are following guidance from public health officials and governmental agencies.

Out of concern for the health and safety of everyone, we are cancelling or postponing all of our public programs and are unable to host visitors to the farm at this time. As it is part of our mission to encourage use of open space and to cultivate a connection with nature, we would like to direct you to our sister organization, the Peconic Land Trust, that oversees many beautiful natural open paces within driving distance from the farm to visit. Click here for more information.

We have paused our general volunteer program. The Nassau Land Trust will continue to monitor the situation and keep you informed of possible pop-up farm stands and plant sales. Our limited staff is working diligently to provide the essential service of growing food for our community. Good food is coming soon. We are working on growing starts for your own home food and flower beds.

We ask that you please join us in our effort to get our crops planted by making a contribution towards our operating costs. Without revenue from events, our market, and education program, it will become increasingly difficult to pay our staff, and therefore to grow our produce over the coming months. Consider making a donation online to help us continue to provide our community with fresh, locally grown food.

        

We will be in touch again soon.

With real care,
Rick White, NLT Chairman
Eva Schwartz, FAC Chair

Notice to Our Community

2019 AF
  


A note to our community

Out of an abundance of caution for the health and safety of everyone, and in recognition of the news coming from our local health authorities, the Centers for Disease Control and the World Health Organization related to COVID-19 (Coronavirus), we are cancelling or postponing all of our public events through the end of March.

These cancellations or postponements may be ongoing into April and beyond depending upon the status of the COVID-19 outbreak. The NLT will continue to monitor the situation and keep you informed about any scheduling changes.

Cautiously, we are continuing to make plans several months ahead with the hope that we will be able to come together later this spring and summer.  For example, we are busy tending to seedlings in the greenhouse and will be sending details about a plant sale as we approach the time for outdoor gardening. 

We hope that you and your family and friends stay healthy and safe during these challenging times. Please take care!

With gratitude,

Rick White, NLT Chairman
Eva Schwartz, FAC Chair
