Since its inception in 2009, Sustain Floyd has focused on sustainability issues through locally based projects including the Floyd Farmers Market, Floyd Energy Fest, SustainFloyd Film Series, Floyd Food Guide, The Personal Climate Pledge and continues to add new projects.
SustainFloyd is participating in this year’s GiveBig event because we need you. All our projects are brought to you from the passion of our board of directors, staff, and volunteers, but we need funding to keep them going and improving.
The Farmers Market
opens May 5th and runs through mid-November. We have been able to provide matching SNAP Benefits to low income families giving them access to good fresh food. A single $20 donation can provide a family with matching funds for a week’s market shopping.
The Second Annual Floyd Energy Fest
is a whole day event with speakers, demonstrations, and a chance to learn more about renewable energy including wind and solar with industry professionals in the summer sun. Join us at Chantilly Farm on July 14th for this solar powered festival where kids are invited, too! Your $100 donation will go a long way in helping this event be a success for Floyd.
The Floyd Food Guide
is a new project we are kicking off this year to help bring more attention to local food and farmers. This gives local food businesses a chance to spread the word on their own missions as well as helping to get locally produced food to a wider population. Your $50 donation will help us put together this printed guide for free distribution.
The SustainFloyd Personal Climate Pledge
has captured the attention of NPR
and local TV stations
. When the U.S. pulled out of the Paris Climate Accord we created The Personal Climate Pledge. It’s a piece of art that reflects a personal commitment to reducing waste and energy by 20% by the year 2020. If you donate $85 and specify that you are contributing to The Pledge, you will receive a framed copy of the artwork and everything that goes with the package. Every little bit helps!
When making your donation today, consider SustainFloyd so we can continue to bring education and awareness to our town and have it spread through the state, nation, and world.
Thank you from all of us at SustainFloyd.
