Your Generous Donations

Of time, money, tools, and resources make our programming possible.

Supporting Our Mission

Farmshed is a collaboration: a network of people, businesses, organizations and productive lands that create a local food economy.  Our programs and events exist because Central Wisconsin residents wish to see things happen on the local food front and step up to make them happen. Together, we dedicate tremendous amounts of time and energy to educate other community members, promote healthy, sustainable eating, and strengthen our local food economy.   We are encouraged by support from each other and work to make local food commonplace on tables throughout the region.

Farmshed’s activities and reach depend on your support.  There are many ways you can donate to the organization.  Whether you donate your time helping a program thrive, your money to help us run programs, become a member to help sustain our operating costs, or provide tools that give us the ability to build our community food center, your generosity is felt by the many people impacted by our programming.
