Good afternoon members,
It is officially December, which seems crazy, but it is truly the most wonderful time of the year, filled with kale, beets, and biscuits! Don't forget to check out our member store if you need any last minute gifts like, hot sauce, coffee, and soap.
You will be receiving an email from me this week with a link to our end of the year member survey. The Global Growers Farm Share program is designed to be so much more than a transactional relationship with customers. We are working together to change the food system, and as a Farm Share member, we rely on your feedback to improve our organization. I am asking that you take 5 minutes out of your day to provide us with your insight, so we can continue to build strong relationships with our members.
