12 days - 12 ways GardenShare is making a difference - day 8

Day 8 of our review of 2016 takes us back to a hot evening in August as we celebrated some key donors and their contributions to GardenShare.

GardenShare's "Sustainers Circle" is a group of donors who are committed to our mission of solving hunger and building a stronger local food system and who have made a three-year or longer pledge to support that mission.

These generous donors provide the backbone of support that lets us do our important work and we cannot thank them enough!  Each summer, our Board of Directors hosts the Sustainers for a reception.  This past August, on one of the hottest afternoons of the summer, we gathered at littleGrasse Foodworks for some conversation, some good homemade treats, and a tour of the farm from our 2015 Growing Community Award recipients, Flip Filippi and Bob Washo.

Bob and Flip give a farm tour.
