We here at Agrinomics are proud to announce that we are sponsoring the Delmarva Farmers Union. As a new chapter of the National Farmers Union, they operate on three pillars to help support family farms that almost anyone can support:
- Economic Cooperation
- Agricultural Education
- State Legislation
A lot of late night conversations and meetings trying to convince others of the importance of local food went into this. Easy access to local, fresh, healthy food is our lives. It’s why we farm. But in order to change the system we have to do more than just keep our heads down and farm. This is why starting the Delmarva Farmers Union just last year here on the shore was so important. We all have to work together to make change happen.
Participating farmer’s markets with compatible 100% producer-grown bylaws and a once-a-year site visit will be able to certify vendors. Likewise, Delmarva Grown farmers will also be able to review each other. This is not a certification of HOW anything is grown, just WHERE it is grown.
Because of the decentralized cell-based structure, there’s no bureaucracy, and if any region fades out, it can always regrow because there’s no vulnerable center. Grassroots local food is now.
Our sponsorship now offers a BUY ONE GET ONE FREE membership drive: buy a $60 one-year membership and get the second year FREE!
Be sure to join the Delmarva chapter here for the benefit — this is open to all Delaware, Maryland, and Virginia residents… if you’re a farmer or a friend of a farmer or just want to support the cause, JOIN US! Please contact us if you’d like more details.
Also, huge shout out to @jessicabattistaart for making these ideas come to life in this logo! It’s perfect.
