Welcome to Indian Valley Organic Farm & Garden !
A NOTE FROM CONSERVATION CORPS NORTH BAY’S PROGRAM DEVELOPMENT DIRECTOR:
Dear Friend of the IVOF&G,
Please read the important email below and forward it on to anyone you believe is interested:
I am writing to inform you of some important transitions at the Indian Valley Organic Farm & Garden (IVOF&G).
The good news is that after much planning, the Indian Valley Organic Farm & Garden’s Executive Committee, in collaboration with community partners, has developed a plan that will allow for greater opportunity and Farm expansion. Initially, this will include the construction of a dedicated classroom, demonstration kitchen and new curriculum. Over the long term, the College of Marin has secured funding to invest in Farm infrastructure as well as startup funding for an endowment. This was always part of our original vision for Farm; so after eight years of being part of a dynamic partnership that helped to launch this powerful community program, we are beyond excited to see this vision start to actualize.
In order to continue this forward momentum, particularly with regard to endowment fundraising, the College of Marin will assume management and fiscal oversight of the Indian Valley Organic Farm & Garden beginning January 2017. Conservation Corps North Bay will begin to transition out of the Farm’s day-to-day management through the Fall and Winter of 2016.
During this transition, we are dedicated to ensuring that IVOF&G meets its mission of being an educational organic farm open to the community. Please join us at one of the upcoming community forums:
Monday, October 24, 2016 – 6 p.m.
Tuesday, November 8, 2016 – 7 p.m.
