We are asking for your help. We have entered the ADP Small Business Grant Contest in the hopes of winning $10,000 to build a raised deck to host farm dinners and events. It's more than just a deck. $10,000 will enable us to carry out our farm's vision of providing our community with experiential education opportunities on the farm. Last summer, we started hosting "pop-up" dinners and organic birthday parties. Guests toured the farm and learned about where their food comes from and how it is produced. We are particularly passionate about our youth programs and believe that educating our young people can change the way people think about food. This summer, in addition to the birthday parties, we have plans to implement a week-long summer farm camp. A raised deck structure will allow us to hold these dinners and events permanently, in a dedicated space to experience all the farm has to offer regardless of the weather.
However, we are 400 votes behind the leader. If even half of our members voted every day for the next 3 days (the contest closes on April 30), we have a shot at winning the grant. We have over 500 members. Will you help us? Every vote counts!
