Thanks to all who attended the FRESH screening at the South Hero Congregational Church on Tuesday evening. More than $1200 was raised for "Food for Thought", the summer program providing wholesome food to more than 125 Grand Isle County children, stemming hunger issues right here in our community! We also deeply appreciated the warm, thankful expressions of gratitude for what we do here at Blue Heron Farm. Our hearts are filled with joy that we can do what we do for such a truly appreciative and supportive community of families, friends, and citizen organizations.
The film helped us all put in perspective how important all of our own local efforts are to creating a healthy, local, safe food system that embraces farms and makes farms an important part of every community. Thank you all who came, helped, provided food, and to those who still have not seen Fresh, please see it :).
Adam, Christine, Eric, Joe, Emily, and (in absentia) Sophie :)
