On May 6th, 2013 starting at 9:30 am, The Live Earth Farm Discovery Program will host a garden work party in celebration of Give Local America and the end of the 2014 Spring Fund Drive. Give Local America is a national day of community giving. LEFDP staff will cook volunteers a pizza lunch in our cob oven in gratitude for the many ways the community gives to LEFDP. The Discovery Program needs to raise $4500 more to provide scholarships to bring kids to the farm to learn to grow and choose food that is healthy for themselves, for their community and for the environment.
Watsonville, CA, April 29, 2014 – The Live Earth Farm Discovery Program (LEFDP) has joined Give Local America, a movement to reignite the spirit of giving across the country and support causes in the communities in which we live, work and play. In honor of local giving, LEFDP staff will cook a cob oven pizza lunch after a morning garden work party, starting at 9:30am. On Tuesday, May 6th 2014, join in celebrating local philanthropy. From Coast to Coast, people will be coming together to “give local.” LEFDP and Give Local America encourage you to join in the excitement by supporting your favorite local organization.
“Our students learn to eat well on the farm. They learn that their food choices make an impact on the local economy and on the environment. They become aware of their place in the ecological system as they harvest and consume healthy snacks, then feed the scraps to chickens, which produce eggs. Students at Live Earth Farm learn responsibility for their choices because they are part of a community,” says LEFDP Director, Jessica Ridgeway. The Spring Fund Drive raises funds for program scholarships for local kids.
