Volunteer Leaders to Create Farm Communities.
Thank you for your interest in volunteering. So you might be thinking what can I do to help build a farm community right in my area? You probably already know how extremely important it is to create a farm community where local customers get to know their local farmers and become intimately informed of where their food comes from while becoming educated in how to create an abundant food supply that is 100% sustainable.
Here is how you can help:
Community: Community is the first step in bringing likeminded folks together to share their interest and discover the power the community has when they come together. Some already know they want to buy directly from their local farmers and understand the importance of sustainable growing practices. While others are just discovering a wholesome lifestyle and simply want a healthy food source for the families. Or maybe it is a local struggling farmers that needs help in establishing “farm to customer” retail sales channels to create abundance for their farm or perhaps successful farmers that want to add another retail channel to reach more consumers giving them choices in where and how they buy their food. No matter what, it ALL starts with building a healthy and involved community and developing leaders like yourself that simply stand up and say; “what can I do to help?”
Building a Farm Community: First we need a community leader and we thank YOU for raising your hand. This person is accountable for results and willing to be responsible for leadership in your local farm community. There is NO WRONG way of being a leader and there are endless ways of successfully building your local farm community. We start with what resources are already in your area: Farmers Markets, Farming Associations, 4H, National Young Farmers Coalition, County Fairs, State Fairs, Livestock Auctions, Farm Equipment Auctions, Flea Markets, Become an NCRS member, USDA membership and on and on. Building your local community is a lot of fun and as the local leader, you can quickly build a community that is educated and committed to having a healthy farming community.
Farmers & Consumers: One of the most important aspects of being a local leader is understanding the needs of both farmers and consumers. Farmers live to create wholesome food for their communities and make a living at getting these farm fresh foods in to the hands of the consumer while providing a good living for their families. Consumers are quickly waking up to their needs of choosing healthy food sources, which supply quality foods direct to their tables. TheOrganicFarmMarket.com is committed to this process and understands the importance for both the farmer and the consumer.
Membership: As a local leader, your most important focus is membership. The dictionary definition of membership is: “the fact of being a member of a group” and “the number or body of members in a group” and “a membership organization is any organization that allows people to subscribe”. This is where understanding the needs of both the farmer and the consumer are extremely useful so that we can provide both with what they are interested in. At TheOrganicFarmMarket.com we love the relationship between farmers & consumers and we are committed to developing local area communities known as “The Organic Farm Market Troup”. “The Organic Farm Market Troup” will organize all sorts of functions and educational series for both the consumer and the farmer.
