Farmer Homes, Photo Contests and The Walk for Hunger



Breaking bread at Powisset

Please join us this Monday, April 6th from 5:30-7pm at the Powisset Farm Kitchen for an informational event about the Walk for Hunger and the work that Project Bread is doing throughout the state to address food insecurity.  Learn how you can be a part of supporting their work by joining the Powisset Farm Walk team!  

There will be two presenters from Project Bread at the farm to share information with us about the important work that is happening across the state and how our Powisset Farm community can become more involved in that good work.  As a bonus, we will break ‘bread’ together—well, actually, biscuits—as one of our wonderful volunteers will be making her award winning biscuits!  Come to learn about the Walk for Hunger and joining Team Powisset!  Stay to share delicious biscuits with friends at the farm!

You will hopefully walk away with a better understanding of Project bread and how you can support their work towards ending hunger in Massachusetts, along with a world class biscuit recipe that you can make for friends and family, to nourish and delight them!

What: The Walk for Hunger/Project Bread info session
When: Monday, April 6th, 5:30-7pm
Where: Powisset Farm Kitchen at the Barn: Powisset Farm, 37 Powisset Street, Dover, MA

Bonus: being at the farm! Friends! Delicious biscuits!
RSVP: if you want to let us know that you are coming, that would be great.   
Email our volunteer, Margie: dillenburgmargie@gmail.com
To let her know that you will be there!

Project Bread in their own words:

 On Sunday, May 3rd, our team is proud to be joining in Project Bread’s Walk for Hunger.



Every May, over 40,000 people walk all or part of a 20-mile course through Greater Boston, earning the pledges they’ve collected to support Project Bread’s fresh approach to ending hunger in our state. Together, we raise awareness of the reality of hunger in our state, make a powerful statement about our shared commitment to help people in need, and, importantly, raise funds that make it possible to develop, fund, and facilitate much-needed programs—programs that interrupt the cycle of food insecurity in our communities, programs that provide hope.



By sponsoring our Walk, you help change thousands of lives across our state.

Looking for Farmer Housing!

Is it time to convert the silo into housing? tinyhousepins.com


Hello Community! Once again, as our wonderful farm team expands, we are looking for temporary housing for farmers!  Do you rent a small apartment on your property?  Are you looking for a summer house-sitter/pet sitter/garden caregiver?  If you have any leads on local housing for your special farmers, please let us know!  Anything within a 30 minute drive of the farm would be wonderful!  

If you know of anything or think you might, please let me know!

Contact me at: mlatronica@ttor.org

Thanks,
Meryl
