Thank Your For a Wonderful Season 2!!

Well, we’ve reached the end of another great season of the Global Growers Farm Share and have a few final items to share with you.

First, we wanted to thank you for being a member and supporting our partner farmers throughout the year. The Farm Share is the most consistent source of income for our partner farmers, providing steady pay throughout the season, making it easier to budget and plan, and allowing them to work on the farm full-time. Thank you for being a part of the work we do.

Second, while you all surely know about the work we do at the farm (and where your veggies are coming from!), you may not know about our network of community gardens in DeKalb County. The gardens provide a space for local families to grow food that is connected to their culture and traditions. The gardens also keep memories alive, build community, and provide comfort and purpose. Our goal is to raise $15,000 by the end of the year to support hundreds of new Americans as they put down roots in their new HOME and GROW healthy food for their new community. We are already 25% of the way - if each of you donates just $25 we could almost reach the half-way point! Learn more about the campaign and make your contribution here.

Finally, we’ll be sending out a survey about your Farm Share experience in the next week. The survey responses help us shape next year’s Farm Share program to better meet your needs, so if you have feedback, now is the time to share it! Look out for an email with the survey link next week. If you complete the survey before December 21, you’ll be entered to win a Global Growers tote bag!

Satsumas!

Did you know Georgia has a growing citrus industry? Satsumas are small, seedless oranges with thin skin that's easy to peel. They are juicy, very sweet and low in acid. A cousin to mandarin oranges that are being grown throughout Southeastern Georgia.

Just Bakery is a great non-profit organization here in Atlanta and we are super excited to be able to include them as this weeks partner product!

Just Bakery is "designed to train, certify, and hire refugees while providing a living wage, producing delicious baked goods, and building a diverse and compassionate community.  We aim to be a viable option for next steps in the resettlement process through building long-term sustainability and economic security as our refugee neighbors recreate home in the Atlanta area".

Great to feed a group of folks and something not too heavy before or after we’ve gorged ourselves through the holidays. Make the rice a day or two ahead for a quick and easy to assemble meal.
