What are the Donations used for?
Special Needs for the Upcoming Season of 2012:
For the new Winter Harvest Program, we need
funds with which to purchase more hoophouses to produce cool weather crops
throughout the normally unproductive winter months of December - Mid-April.
The France Merrick Foundation and The
Weinberg Foundation have made significant
contributions to this program - almost 5000 sq ft of greenhouse space - but
we need to double that space to even begin to meet the need for emergency
food in the Baltimore Metro area. After a flurry of good will holiday
donations in December, food donations evaporate in the winter months. Yet,
winter is the toughest time for poor and homeless people. More than any
other time of the year, they need extra healthy food to fight freezing cold
For both the organic produce production / donation
program and the new Milk & Egg Program, we
need a new tractor. We have over
80 acres of fencing to enclose, and so we need a reliable and efficient
post-hole digger that only a tractor can operate. And we can only use
a tractor to plant 70 acres in annual crops.
For the new MILK & EGG PROGRAM,
we need all kinds of lumber, block, nails, shingles, roof paper, all the
construction materials to build sheds with which to increase our number of goats
& sheep, chicken houses, and fencing. Also, plumbing
materials for installing water pipe and hydrants to bring water to the animals'
We need funding also for general operating costs for these new programs such
as egg cartons and for the fuel and maintenance of our delivery truck and for
the cost of refrigeration of the eggs..
