If you are interested in being involved in the 2011 Farm season, please plan on attending our volunteer orientation training day. It will be hosted at the Northstar Building in Fayetteville. We will be discussing our new location, 2011 goals, descriptions of volunteer needs, guidelines, safety, and other farm programs. Lunch will be provided!
The Farm initiative is designed to use agriculture to help the under-resourced in our community by focusing on Hunger Relief, Education, Economic Development, Community, Food Production and Sustainability.During the 2010 season, a Gift Card Program was created to provide free food for students on free or reduced school lunch programs. For the 2011 season, we have two new initiatives launching to include: Harvest Share and Work Share.
The Farm initiative began as a result of the 1,287 Stand Up and Be Counted Homelessness initiative when Mark Horvath’s (founder InvisiblePeople.tv) visited NW Arkansas. This created an opportunity for the Cobblestone Project to collaborate with World Garden on their feeding initiative now known as The Cafe, expand the Gathering & Distribution initiative and form The Farm.
