MOFGA's Low-Income CSAs Fundraiser
We have reached our $6,000 goal!
Thanks to more than 60 generous donors, we raised more than $6,000 toward our effort to help seven organic farmers offer half-price CSA shares of healthy, organic food to low-income Maine families! We are so grateful to all of you! This fundraiser runs until May 27, and donations are still welcomed.
At its Board of Directors Meeting on Sunday, the Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association (MOFGA) appointed long-time Executive Director Russell Libby to a new position: Senior Policy Advisor. This appointment underscores MOFGA’s commitment to creating innovative public policy that supports organic local agriculture, protects the environment, and illuminates for consumers the connection between healthful food and environmentally sound farming practices.
