"If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together." (African proverb)
Our work at Good Food Community began the day we made contact with our farmers. That we have been able to learn from each other, dialogue, adjust, withstand environmental, economic and interpersonal difficulties and stay in this conversation is both the gift of grace and possible only with the support of countless friends, subscribers, family and strangers. Thank you for believing that a sustainable food system and future for all is possible through our work. There is still a long way to go but the road ahead is full of hope!
And what exactly is our work? On the surface, we enhance their local knowledge of ecological farming and work out solutions so that the products of those diversified systems find appropriate markets. Along the way, they learn to articulate their dreams, not only for themselves but for the next generation. They learn new languages- of business, documentation, policy; and we? We learn to listen. Beneath all this, our work is to inspire one another. It is to say with our words, actions, projects, troubleshooting, experimentation and eating habits day in and day out: "Let's change the world with food."
Help us grow relationships and be a part of our community.
