Farm Shares Benefitting the Community

If you are thinking about becoming a member of a Farm Share, another thing to take into consideration is the amount of outreach the farm does within the community to provide healthy produce to those who may not be able to afford it.

I wanted to share this excerpt from our February 22, 2010 Enterprise Farm Newsletter:

Each increase in Farmshare membership enables Enterprise Farm to achieve larger goals related to sustainable practices and food distribution efficiency. ... We're also committed to providing healthy, fresh food to all people, regardless of socio-economic background.  We're very proud of our relationships with Food For Free (Cambridge, MA), the Survival Center (Northampton, MA), and the Brookline Community Foundation. ... Given the amount of food waste that occurs in the modern marketing system, this is incredibly satisfying.
