We are proud to announce our Memorial Day Membership Drive. Here is how it works–
Our goal is to sign up 50 new Shares from NOW TILL the end of MAY. This is 50 individual Shares which means that a Whole Farm Share counts for 5 Shares: 1 Produce, 1 Egg, 1 Chicken, 1 Meat and 1 Cheese Share.
If we reach our goal, Groundworks Farm will make a donation of 5% of the gross sales of all Shares added during the drive to Got Your 6. Got Your 6 is an organization that directly supports veterans through charitable partnerships and aims to bridge the gap between military service members and civilians.
We chose this organization because they are the primary giving partner of Sword and Plough, founded and run by college friends of Kevin’s. Their mission is to empower veteran employment, reduce waste and strengthen shared civilian-military understanding. They re-purpose surplus military materials into stylish goods, working with veteran owned, operated and staffed manufacturers and donating 10% of their profits to Got Your 6 and other veteran focused organizations.
Do you already have a Share and have been thinking about adding on an Egg or Meat Share? Already have a Meat Share and have been thinking those vegetables look pretty delicious? This is the time to do it! If we reach our goal, we will make our 5% donation for as many Shares as we can sign up in the duration of the drive. Our goal is 50 Shares!
So NOW is the time to tell your friends and neighbors about the farm! We hope to inspire you to spend time with family this weekend and perhaps make your own donation to an organization that supports our military service members. Being a part of Community Supported Agriculture, like Groundworks Farm, is a way to build and strengthen community ties and eat healthy in the process.
We will be posting the progress of the drive on Facebook, so make sure you follow us there to see how we are doing!
