Beautiful site! Ready for #spring #pyo #csa #summercamp #livingonafarm (at Longview Center for Agriculture (http://www.greenerpartners.org/))
Thank you for being a part of our efforts to preserve hundreds of acres of farmland, train new farmers, and transform communities through the direct connection to healthy food.
“I want you to come back every day to share your delicious snacks with us. I don’t like the food when it’s by its self, but when it’s in a snack, I like it! The spaghetti squash was good. I would like to eat it everyday!” ~ 3rd Grade Student after tasting spaghetti squash in a Seed to Snack® lesson.
Our programs are leading the way to inspire a new generation of healthy eaters! But we couldn’t have done it without you!
On behalf of our Farmers, our Farm Educators, our Board and Staff, thank you for your continued support!
~ The Greener Partners Team
This year’s Farmer Showdown was a great success! Four teams of local farmers competed for trophies, prizes and bragging rights. The events included pumpkin tossin’, a wheelbarrow obstacle course, a turnip eatin’ contest, tractor pullin’ and a nail-biting tug o’ war. Team Rhizome took home first place, our own Greener Partners Tri-State CRAFT team came in second place, followed by Falcon Farm and Red Hill Farm.
Last Saturday afternoon, the Longview Center for Arts hosted Christina Roberts from Marafiki Arts of Philadelphia in a demonstration on the process of dyeing textiles with natural dyes.
