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.
