Wow! Its March and it sure feels like spring, Nevada style…
The Vernal Equinox is on March 20…… Remember to stock up on local seeds at the store too…
If you are interested in helping to create a stronger local food system right here where we live, please come to one of our two remaining presentations that take place right across the street from our potential new site. If we can pull this big move together, it will be the future home of a local food distribution center and much more room to display local food from our lovely farmers & producers. This means: working together, being more efficient, building infrastructure, getting prices down, building community, more local food, more locally produced goods, a healthier food shed, healthier happier people, land, and creatures!!!!!
The goal that we have set to reach to make our big move a reality is $415,000. If ALL OF OUR active 2600 member owners pre-pay their memberships for ten years ($15 per year x 10= $150), we would almost reach our goal! If 415 of our members can loan the GBCFC $1000, we would also reach our goal. We can also accept loans up to $50,000. Call our office for a loan prospectus at 775-324-2922
The next presentation is tonight at 5:30pm. The last presentation is on Monday, March 7 at 5:30pm. Please go here to RSVP!
