The 2016 Midlands Farm Tour is Saturday, May 21st from 11-6pm, and 50 volunteers like YOU are needed to make this event possible. It’s so fun and easy! The farmers will be busy conducting tours, so we need volunteers at every farm to check in guests, sell passes, and act as friendly ambassadors.
There are two volunteer shifts: 10:30 – 2:45 & 2:30-6:30. You’ll receive a pass to check out other farms on the tour when it’s not your shift!
All official volunteers will be invited to the Farmer Potluck on May 12th out at Mercer House Estate Winery and also receive a wonderful, all new farm tour t-shirt. There will be a volunteer training a week prior to the tour.
Do you believe in supporting Midlands Farmers? Do you agree we all should build a food system that ensures all residents have access to healthy, affordable food that’s produced with dignity, a healthy and sustainable living for farmers, and our environment is protected?
Then join the Midlands Food Alliance (MFA) table at farmers markets and farm events to encourage your neighbors to participate in the Midlands Farm Tour (May 21st) and to SIGN the LOCAL FOOD PLEDGE: I pledge to spend at least $10 a week on foods produced in SC and support my county and city leadership in prioritizing local food production.
