At Iron Springs, we like to think of ourselves as active participants in our community, not as passive service providers. We know that the folks who frequent our pub are not just customers, they are our friends and neighbors. We like to think that this attitude is reflected in our style of service and in our casual, homey atmosphere. But that’s really just a reflection of what goes on behind the scenes at Iron Springs.

One of the most overt ways in which we choose to contribute to our community is through our “Give Back Tuesday” program. Every Tuesday, a percentage of the proceeds from the pub are donated to a local cause or organization. In this way, folks can come down, have a nice meal and a pint (or several) and know that some of what they spend on their meal is coming right back into the programs and services that make Fairfax and Marin such a fantastic place to live.

Our staff all lives locally, and we’re all raising our kids, dogs, cats and ferrets, living our lives, and doing our best to adhere to a simple credo: love one another. With everything we do – both big and small – we’re trying to make the world a better place to live in. For ourselves, for our children, and for our neighbors.

The Iron Springs Give Back Tuesday program has donated an average of over $15,000 a year to such great causes as:

  • The YES Foundation
  • Drake High Mt. Bike Team
  • Marin Community Food Bank
  • Bread & Roses
  • Adopt-a-Family of Marin
  • Point Reyes Seashore Association
  • Conservation Corps North Bay
  • And many more… Click here for a complete list.

Drop us an email if you have an idea for a Give Back Tuesday’s recipient, or watch our Give Back Tuesday video here!

July 15th – Marin Organic

Marin Organic logo grey 2014Marin Organic partners with local farms to promote organic agriculture, provide food system education, and increase access to fresh produce for people in need. We provide marketing support for our farmers and help them build relationships with local businesses. In turn, their member farms provide both the locations for our education programs and the extra food that we harvest for hunger relief organizations. Marin Organic is proud to work in partnership with ranchers, farmers, and food producers to provide education on farms, empowering youth with the skills to take control of their “food future,” while also feeding the most vulnerable members of our community.

Marin Organic was founded in 2001 by local farmers and ranchers who believed in creating meaningful standards for organic agriculture. These pioneers began meeting in the late 1990s to craft a vision for our region where agriculture would be environmentally and economically sustainable. Marin County has a rich history of family farms, but like many regions, we were at risk of losing our small farms at the same time that we were witnessing alarming environmental destruction. Thanks to the work of a few dedicated farmers and ranchers, Marin County became the epicenter of the organic farming movement. Today Marin County counts over 33,000 acres of certified organic land, up from only 400. Marin is one of only three counties in California with a moratorium on growing GMOs. 40 farms, ranches, and producers are members of Marin Organic and continue to drive a local, sustainable food movement.  Find out more at http://www.marinorganic.org.

July 22nd – Ceres Community Project of Marin

Ceres LogoAt The Ceres Community Project, their goal is to restore whole foods to their place as the primary foundation for long-term health, and to build the networks of relationship among all members of our community that support happier and healthier lives.

Ceres’ Marin project has been creating a healthy community around whole, sustainable food since the fall of 2010. They do it by bringing local teens into the kitchen, connecting them with healthy food knowledge and real cooking skills, and giving them a chance to learn and to give back to their larger community. They’ve prepared thousands of delicious, nourishing, free meals that sustain Marin families who are struggling with the challenges of serious illness such as cancer. Each week colorful meal bags are packed with these carefully crafted meals and delivered by caring volunteers to Marin client families.  Find out more at http://marin.ceresproject.org.

July 29th – Marin County Library FLAGship Program

FLAGship busThe FLAGship, a mobile library and activity center on wheels, is a favorite for kids and adults alike.  Storytimes, kids’ songs, games, puppets, crafts and other fun kindergarten-readiness activities are presented to children and modeled for adults. The FLAGship offers education and health workshops to adults and their children 0 to 5 years old. Referrals and brochures about family health and education opportunities are always available. www.marinlibrary.org/flagship.

 

 

 

June Give Back Tuesdays at Iron Springs

May 28th, 2014

Each Tuesday we are thrilled to donate 10% to local groups working to support our community.   For more information, or to nominate a group, please contact anne@ironspringspub.com.

June 3rd – Marin YMCA

YMCAThe Marin and Novato Ys serve communities from Sausalito to Novato and all areas in between.  They are a volunteer mission-driven organization charged with building strong kids, strong families and strong communities by enriching the lives of all people in spirit, mind and body.  Visit their website at http://www.ymcasf.org/marin/

June 10th – The Hungry Owl Project

2013-HOP-Logo-InvoicesThe Hungry Owl Project, based in San Anselmo, was founded almost 10 years ago in an effort to reduce the residential and commercial use of pesticides and rodenticides by emphasizing reliance on beneficial predators such as Barn Owls, Western Screech Owls, American Kestrels (a falcon), Western Bluebirds and bats.  By putting up appropriate nesting boxes for these creatures, we can keep rodents and insects at bay without poisons.  Through the years they have expanded from Marin into Sonoma and Napa where we are working with vineyards such as Kendall-Jackson and Honig to help make their operations sustainable.  In addition to selling and installing boxes (made by community volunteers, high school woodshop students, Eagle scouts, etc.), they give educational presentations at local schools, featuring our non-releasable Barn Owl, Wookie, do rescue and rehab of owls and raptors in connection with WildCare and other programs.  You can find out more at www.hungryyowl.org.

June 17th – Fairfax Open Space Committee

fairfax open spaceThe Fairfax Open Space Committee’s mission is to preserve the visual and environmental values of our community through the purchase of undeveloped land in and around Fairfax.  Their goal is to provide sanctuary for indigenous flora and fauna for future generations.  This year, they will be using funds raised primarily for acquisition of the Upper Ridgeway Trail above the Willow Avenue neighborhood in Fairfax.  Find out more at www.fairfaxopenspace.com.

June 24th – Memorial Skate Park Project

The Memorial Skate Park Project will be a new skate plaza developed in the basketball court area of Memorial Park in San Anselmo. It will be a shared space with half-court basketball, and will include a very exciting skate run for all of the skaters and scooter riders in our two towns. This program came about as a result of the growing need for a safe and legal place for local kids and teens to skate. Currently we have close to 100 young people throughout San Anselmo, Fairfax and the Valley who skate exclusively or in addition to their other structured sports and activities. They are counting on community support to help them reach our financial goal of $45,000 to build the park.
