Help a farmer.
December 3, give a Virginian farm personalized, hands-on support.
Ray is a new Local Food Hub partner farmer, who recently decided to pursue his dream of farming full-time – of growing delicious and quality produce that’s good for us and good for the environment.
Ray has farmed part-time before, but full-time farming requires way more knowledge and support – everything from how to best dry garlic for maximum shelf-life, to understanding the complicated web of federal regulations. Local Food Hub has the knowledge and resources to help Ray – Your gift today will provide Ray with critical technical assistance at no cost to him. The first 8 donors who set up a monthly gift of $10 will have their gift matched for 2020!
Starting a new job is hard enough. Imagine starting a new job with no boss or coworkers, a difficult learning curve, and a complex web of rules and regulations. Your gift will go directly to helping Ray successfully navigate challenges of small farming through personalized support in identifying and navigating markets, best farming practices, and getting the certification he needs.
Will you help Ray? Your gift of $20 will cover an hour of one-on-one work with our Grower Services staff.
Support Ray – donate this Giving Tuesday.
