Outpost 2020 Sustainable Agriculture Partner
Fondy Farm Project at Mequon Nature Preserve
In 2020, Outpost's Co-op Community Fund will contribute more than $3,200 to assist with irrigation at the Fondy Farm Project at the Mequon Nature Preserve. Currently the 26 Hmong family farmers carry water to their fields. Our donation will pay for refurbishing two water wagons, installing a drip irrigation pilot program, and for interpretation days where they learn from the farm director and share improved farming techniques.
Outpost also donated $1 to Fondy Food Center for every ballot cast in our 2020 Board Election, resulting in an additional $635!
We will be promoting their programs on social media and encouraging our shoppers to support their organization year-round through their various programs, such as the Fondy Farmer’s Market, Winter Farmer’s Market and by purchasing items like their Red Stone rice, the first and only rice grown and harvested in Wisconsin.
