Your support allows our roots to deepen and our benefits to grow.
Grow Food Northampton relies 100% on community financial support to develop the Northampton Community Farm and share its many benefits–its nutritious food, fertile garden plots, and farm education programs–with thousands of diverse citizens!
Contributions are fully tax-deductible and here are some of the great ways your dollars will support our work:
$25 supplies a hand trowel and spade for a youth gardening program at the Florence Organic Community Garden (FOG)
$50 subsidizes one garden plot and organic gardening training for a low-income household
$100 enables an underserved youth to learn farm skills as part of an after-school program at the Farm
$200 doubles the value of foodstamps applied to one farmshare allowing a low-income household to enjoy a season’s supply of fresh produce
$250 rents a bus to carry area school children on a field trip to the farm to glean vegetable and learn farm skills
$500 allows us to hire a work-study college student 10 hours/week for one semester–greatly supporting our administrative, research and program needs
