Request for Storytellers!

David Miskell and Farmers To You Families, during our Fall Equinox Event

Dear Families,

This is a request for help in telling our story – the story of what this Farmers To You community is really about and the change we wish to see in the world.

Next Wednesday, 1/18, @ 6:30pm, I am giving a talk at the Wellesley Hill Branch Library, at 210 Washington Street, and I will be telling our story. Come join us, but I am also asking you to connect us to other story tellers.

Here is the summary of the picture I wish to paint.

A Solstice Reflection

The Winter Solstice is a magical time of rich introspection and reflection – about the year and rhythms that have just passed and about setting intentions for what is to come.

I would like to share my reflections on our work and purpose as well as acknowledge this nourishing community we are building together.

This past year has been very full… When we called on you to help grow this community to sustainability – you responded, and we have made it!

We are now feeding over 800 families a week, and our operations are running at break even.

Thanksgiving Blessing

Thank you for being a part of this extraordinary community. Each week we all are changing our food — the way it is grown and the priority it takes in all our lives. The simple act of choosing what we value — for our families, our health, and our communities — has a profound effect. Your farmers are responding, your community is acting, and together we are making the world a little better every day. It feels good to know we are all making a difference in a world that is crying out for something much better than the current reality.

Boldness and Persistence Build Community

This is the last week of our fall community membership drive! We are so close to our goal of feeding 800 families a week — this week we fed a record-breaking 785 families.

I was in Boston Wednesday and Thursday and many of you shared how you’ve been spreading the word about our food, farmers and community and feeling a bit frustrated that more new families have not signed up. Thank you for all your hard work — really.  But this is long-term work, as we have seen during our six years of steady growth.
