Dear friends, 

Many thanks to those of you who joined us at Farms Forever 2015 on Saturday, October 24th! For the first time in the event's five-year history, we were completely sold out - two hundred people turned out to support the Community Farm Land Trust!
 
We're very pleased to say that, thanks to you, we didn't just achieve our goal, we surpassed it! As a community, you invested over $30,000 in the future of our local farmland! Wow! 

This generous outpouring of support will allow us to accomplish significant things in 2016: 
  • Expand our outreach to local farmland owners;
  • Identify high-priority farmland preservation projects;
  • Leverage available grant funding to preserve our next farm;
  • Protect Oyster Bay Farm in perpetuity and facilitate the transfer of the historic farm to a new generation of farmers; and
  • Continue stewarding the farm properties we own, to ensure that their value to the community is maximized.  
 

Thank you to all our sponsors, as well as the farmers, chefs, food producers, businesses that donated auction items, and volunteers, whose vital contributions made the evening such a success. 
 
Thank you for being part of our community, and for sharing in our vision of abundant, productive local farmland. 
 

We look forward to seeing you at Farms Forever next year! Mark your calendars for October 22nd, 2016, at the Thurston County Fairgrounds Expo Center! 
 
Sincerely,

The board and staff of SSCFLT

P.S. Didn't make it to Farms Forever? You can still make a difference for the future of farmland by giving a donation today.
