Let’s grow the Future for Farming.
Much is at stake. Our economy. Our environment. The viability of our rural communities. Our ability to feed ourselves and help feed others.
We recently launched our largest campaign ever, Securing a Future for Farming. This campaign will raise funds to:
- protect 100,000 acres of Maine’s farmland
- provide 1,000 farm families individualized services and support.
It’s going to take a whole lot of hard work to protect more farmland, help farmers thrive, and increase access to local food. We need your help.
A critical period of transition
For farming in Maine to continue to grow and for the local food movement to realize its full potential, we need a dedicated community of people who are passionate about Maine food and farms. Maine could become New England’s food basket. Together, we can grow the future of farming.
How? We need to:
Help us raise the next $1 million for the Future for Farming.
If you + 1,999 others give $10/month for 25 months we can raise $500,000.
The money raised will be MATCHED dollar-for-dollar by two generous donors.
So your $10/month will help us raise $1 million!
