Thank you to our friends and allies at Food AND Medicine for hosting a press conference at the Workers Rights Center of Eastern Maine this morning to kick off the Farm Labor Reality Tour. The send-off came after a productive morning meet of FAM members who are working to make small farms viable through innovative programs like their matching EBT program at the Ohio St. Farmers Market in Bangor.
During the event, Food for Maine’s Future board member and Saving Seeds Farm manager Bob St.Peter presented FAM director Jack McKay with tomato, pepper, and onion seeds produced by FMF last season. May the seeds of our collaboration continue to grow!
