Cultivating Community Together
We believe that healthy local food systems are the foundation for a thriving community. Together, we are becoming active "co-producers" of an alternative to industrial agriculture. We are grateful to the many diverse people who are doing the important work of building healthy, resilient communities.
This year, LifeCycles' work was enabled by more than 500 volunteers. We rescued over 60,000 lbs of local food and harvested 633 backyard fruit trees for our largest harvest - ever! We also hosted over 250 food literacy workshops in: schools, community gardens, farms, libraries, community orchards, and community kitchens across the Capital Region.
As the season comes to a close, we want to say a big thank you for stepping up this year! Working together, we've cultivated community and sowed the seeds of health for our region.
