Continuing our tradition of raising money for local charities and organizations at our festivals, we are proud to announce that our local partner at the Festival of Farmhouse Ales will, for the second year, be Four Seasons of Early Learning.
Four Seasons of Early Learning is a non-profit preschool that serves Greensboro, VT, and the surrounding towns, with the majority of their students coming from single-parent and working families. Funds from our 2014 FoFA helped launch a new Farm-to-Preschool program that taught the children science, math, reading, and healthy eating through a curriculum that included planting a garden, writing recipes, and ultimately serving the food at community events to feed their neighbors. Last year, we raised over $4,500 through the amazing generosity of our attendees.
All funds from this year’s FoFA will go toward expanding the program by building a working farm stand at the preschool.
The fundraiser will be a bottle raffle, featuring several of our favorite bottles from our personal beer cellar. Each raffle ticket will cost $5 (cash only!). Please bring plenty of extra cash, buy plenty of tickets, (with luck) win some great bottles, and—most importantly—help us support the great work of Four Seasons of Early Learning.
