We’re closing out 2021 feeling proud of what we’ve achieved over the past year and excited and ready to make big things happen in 2022! In 2021, we saw significant growth of our New Farmer Academy and Community Food Access program, and an overall continued need and love for supporting local, small businesses at the farmers’ market in beautiful CVNP. Take a sneak peek at what we made happen in 2021. A full 2021 impact report will be coming in early 2022.
