We’re finally ready to launch our fundraising campaign for the Willow Brook Farm & Art Center Beginning Farmer Fellowship!
We’re excited to introduce our first fellowship recipients, Austin and Taylor, who started at the farm this spring. They’re off and running and we are so pleased to have them here.
Your donation is an investment in the fellows’ future that lays the foundation for their success but it’s also so much more. Your donation also helps ensure a future that includes successful and sustainable beginning/young farmers who will protect and preserve farmland and our access to fresh, local, organic farm products.
We rely on the generosity of people like you to fund the work we do, from providing fellowships and education, to hosting community events.
We are acutely aware of the need to encourage and support beginning farmers starting out today. Easier and less risky jobs abound, good land more often goes for housing development, and tractors are expensive. Yet, farms are a vital part of our communities and local farmers are integral to providing healthy, earth-sustaining food for our families. We’ve got big plans here at Willow Brook Farm, but we couldn’t do it without your support. Check out our new website, read up on our first fellows, and if you support our mission, find out more about our fundraising campaign here.
