2013 Winter Cache Project Kickoff Meeting

Come learn about the WCP and our plans for this year. Find out about:

  • The project
  • The farm
  • Weekly work-parties
  • Car pooling
  • Communication
  • Educational programs on the farm and off
  • This year's distribution structure

We gather at 4pm for the meeting. Kids are welcome.
The WCP has been going on for years and the new team steering it wants this year to be a combination of best practices of other project years and plus some new elements as well.
The mission of the Winter Cache Project (WCP) is to free ourselves from a dependence on industrial agriculture and to increase our community food security by developing sustainable local food systems. By growing and storing our own food to last throughout the winter and educating ourselves about agricultural issues, we aim to create a working example of how we can come together as a community to provide for our basic needs by employing the principles of mutual aid, equal access, and self-determination.

Thank-you,
    Kristen

    I'm sorry to miss this meeting. I just got home from Lake Tahoe this morning at 4:30 am (4 hour delay in Philly) so I have other priorities today. I would love to learn more about this project and hopefully participate this year. I live in North Yarmouth and think I am close to the farm.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
