Host

Young Farmers Coalition of Western New York



It's spring, and the plants are beginning to emerge from the ground, so we're making plans to emerge from our farms to gather in community for a potluck on Saturday April 15th.

Join us at Massachusetts Avenue Project at 5pm.

Bring a dish to pass and your own plate, cup and silverware.  

If you have a farm book or books you'd like to contribute to the book swap, bring those along as well.

At the potluck, the YFC-WNY board will be checking back with you, our community, about whether our group should affiliate as an official chapter of the National Young Farmers Coalition.  We've attached a pdf to this email to share some of the pros and cons we've learned about chapter limitations within the organization, which have us reconsidering affiliation. 

In case you cannot make it to the potluck, to recast a vote for affiliation, we have created an online poll.  Online voting will close at 5pm on April 15th.  Vote here.

Please limit yourself to one vote.  Either online or in person at the potluck, where we hope to have a candid discussion regarding the pros and cons of becoming a YFC chapter.

We look forward to reconnecting with you soon!
