What more can we say other then to thank each of you for supporting Littleton Community Farm at our Rooted in Community event! It was a warm and wonderful evening of community, old and new friends, good food and libations.
Brian Donahue’s presentation made an impact on many of us. Currently, New England farms on 2 million acres of land for 14.5 million people. With an addition of 4 million acres New England could one day produce 50% of what we eat. The vision also looks to 2060 where food is a basic human right and no one goes hungry. We are proud to be a small part of 50 By 60 TM .
The board and volunteers have worked hard over the past two years to build the farm to what it is today. With your continued help we look to build the second phase of our farm. A greenhouse, and farm implements are just a few of the capital equipment needs to put our crop in the ground. Please consider donating at littletoncommunityfarm.com/donate
