Is the planet on your gift list this season? If not, ponder this: the earth sustains 75 billion tons of life. This place we call home is a complex living system, an interactive network of water, rock, soil and air.
The PCC Farmland Trust has established a fund to help farmers at the Ames Creek Farm recover from devastating floodwaters last month. Shoppers can donate right at the registers of any PCC store to the Organic Farmer Fund for Emergency Relief (OFFER).
Autumn on the farm is a feast and a celebration. The gathering chill and sharpening angle of the sun seem to persuade us, whether we like it or not, to slow down and lay on fat.
2006 was a very busy year for the PCC Farmland Trust ... Now PCC members and other Farmland Trust supporters are generously coming forward with donations to pay down the loan that allowed us to acquire the Ames Creek Farm. With your help, we can mark this year as a great success in fulfilling the mission of the PCC Farmland Trust.
