Winter Season Week 19 – April 18 & 19

April 17, 2012

HAPPY EARTH DAY!

As we celebrate this great day – let me say a huge thank you to all of you for your continued support of Mountain Bounty Farm, local food, family farming, and the local economy! We rely on folks like you to help sustain the farm. Please continue that support by becoming a MBF summer member and pass on the news to your friends. THINK LOCAL!

I hope to see you at Truckee Tahoe Earth Day, this Saturday, April 21 at Squaw Valley. I’ll be there tabling for Mountain Bounty – I’d love to meet you. You’ll also want to check out the Wild & Scenic Film Festival - it will kick off the TT Earth Day festivities at Squaw Thursday & Friday nights.
