Seed to Table (S2T) is grateful to everyone who participated in the success of 2022. Fundraising efforts exceeded expectations, with nearly 240 individual donors contributing to the organization’s biggest community fundraising campaign to date. In total, community donations brought in $141,200, launching S2T into a strong 2023. Last year was full of a vast ecosystem of support for Seed to Table. In addition to donor support, more than 100 community members dug deep alongside the S2T team to harvest produce and feed our community. In September, a flurry of people of all ages harvested 1,000 pounds of carrots.
Five-year-olds filled buckets, while their grandparents and neighbors loosened the carrots from the ground. It was a true team effort between our organization and the community. Seed to Table’s impact is growing with all of this collective energy — in the field, classroom, and at the Farmers Market.
“Our board and staff appreciate the building momentum that continues to foster our collective and individual desires for health and wellness, which we know is deeply personal for each community member. Thank you for sharing your journey with us. Thank you for letting the fresh veggies from the farm be a part of your daily routine; thank you for amplifying the power of hands-on, farm-based education; thank you for allowing students to create positive relationships with fresh veggies; and thank you for bringing your own energy to the Sisters Farmers Market. We are grateful to be working alongside you!” said Founder and Executive Director Audrey Tehan.
