SUBJECT:  Your Voice Matters! Take a survey & be entered to win $50! 

BODY: Please take 10 to 15 minutes to fill out the survey that best suits your role.

With uncertainties surrounding food and agriculture today, we believe the more self-sufficient our community can be, the more secure we all will be.  From ensuring the future viability of family farms, to all cupboards and freezers being stocked,  we believe it will require understanding every sector’s and every person’s struggles and needs if everyone  is going to thrive.

The SLV Local Foods Coalition wants to hear from every aspect of our ag and food systems, to gain a comprehensive view of our collective situation in order to create a road map for our community going forward.

They are asking people, like you, with real experience in the SLV food and ag systems, to relay your struggles, your ideas and the opportunities you imagine for a thriving future in the face of water shortages and economic uncertainty.

If you have more to share than this survey covers, feel free to contact Jae – call, text or email Jae Sanders, the Community Food & Ag Assessment Coordinator. She’s happy to listen to your concerns and solutions.     575.999.5319        jae.slvlocalfoods@gmail.com

Share this invitation with your colleagues and friends involved in SLV agriculture.

Thanks for all you do to keep our food growing!
