The 2018 NOFA/Mass team of runners and walkers

On November 4, 2018, members of the NOFA/Mass staff, board and supporters gathered in Lexington to participate in the 6th Annual NOFA/Mass Food as Medicine Run/Walk, sponsored by the Battlegreen Run Foundation.  Over the course of two months, participants reached out to friends, family and NOFA/Mass members to raise funds to support the event.  In total, the group was able to raise $17,685 to support NOFA/Mass’ work to:

  • Help growers reduce climate change, building living, carbon-rich soils
  • Educate growers and consumers of all types, on-farms and at our two annual conferences
  • Ensure access to healthy food and organic farming resources for underserved populations
  • Train the next generation of organic farmers and gardeners in Massachusetts

Top fundraisers included Mary Deblois, a longtime NOFA/Mass supporter, Julie Rawson, NOFA/Mass Executive Director, and Jack Kittredge, former NOFA/Mass staff member, and current Editor of The Natural Farmer.  

Following the event, the NOFA team gathered for what Julie declared to be the “best NOFA/Mass Potluck ever!”

Join the NOFA/Mass Team at next year’s event as a runner, walker or fundraiser.   Mark your calendars for November 3, 2019.
