Cascadian Farms donating 3% of sales for a good cause!!

In partnership with the National Co-op Grocers,
the Olympia Food Co-op will be participating in a fundraising effort
by Cascadian Farms to donate funds to the Land Institute.

For two weeks, starting February 14th, Cascadian Farms will give a percentage of their sales, and the National Co-op Grocers will match the total, up to $25,000!


Here are some words from Cascadian Farms:

We believe in organic farming to build healthy soils and in supporting healthy soil research that can positively impact our plant’s climate.

Due to agricultural processes including higher volume tillage and the use of pesticides and fertilizers—the health of our soil is decreasing at an alarming rate, and without healthy soil, we face more pollution and less cultivation.

The Land Institute is focused on introducing perennial grains to ecological communities, transforming agriculture globally with a regenerative, more sustainable agricultural production. Through perennial grains and intercropping systems including Kernza, Sorghum, Silphium, Perennial Wheat, Legumes, the Global Inventory Project, and ecological succession—The Land Institute is providing ecosystem services to food production systems similar to those of native landscapes.

At Cascadian Farm, we’re all in too. From 2/14 to 2/27 of 2018, we’ll be donating 3% of all Cascadian Farm sales at participating co-op retailers located in the United States to The Land Institute. Together, we can make an impact on healthy soil, and a healthier planet.
