Seed of Life Nurseries, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to supplying fresh produce to impoverished communities, and Cowork Frederick, a shared working environment and community for freelancers and teleworkers , today announced a website launch party to highlight what Seed of Life Nurseries provides to the community and raise much needed funds to support its mission.
Seed of Life Nurseries feeds over 3,000 families in the community and has given out over 96,000 pounds of food from January 2016 to date. Its mobile grocery store, Market on the Roll (MOTR), brought farm produce to food deserts. The not-for-profit also teaches children about healthy food and its benefits and helps kids create their own in-school gardens. Over 500 volunteers work with Seed of Life Nurseries to provide fresh food to families in need. Donations to the 501(c)3 organization and its CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) memberships fund these programs.
The new website, created by Cowork Frederick members, will provide Seed of Life Nurseries better exposure in the community, easier access for CSA clients, and ultimately give Seed of Life “the ability to feed more people,” said Michael Dickson, founder – otherwise known as Farmer Mike. Cowork Frederick is also the sponsor of the launch party, being held June 11, 2017:
