2019 in Review
The Friends of Up Yonda Farm would like to reflect on our good fortune and accomplishments of the past year; and share them with people like you, who value and appreciate Up Yonda Farm.
- Using a grant provided by the Warren County Soil & Water Conservation District, a worm composter was purchased for Up Yonda Farm; and, with our help, a donation of an industrial sized composter was received from a local business. These will help to reduce waste at the Farm and produce healthy compost for the gardens. Most importantly, these will serve as tools for the farm’s educational programs related to conservation.
- Multiple pairs of children’s binoculars and magnifying glasses were purchased for use by students and visitors to Up Yonda Farm.
- Over 200 pumpkins were purchased for attendees of Up Yonda Farms annual “Trunk or Treat” event in October.
- Special give-away items were provided to supplement the “Campfire Chats” that were held at Up Yonda Farm as part of their summer programming.
- An informational booth was set up at the Bolton Farmer’s Market and at the Lake George Land Conservancy’s Family Day, to provide information to the community and visitors about Up Yonda Farm and the Friends.
We have many exciting ideas for the upcoming year, including a Beehive Observation Station, benches and other seating, and a sightseeing scope at the Up Yonda Farm vista. In addition to the many generous donations we’ve received, we also intend to conduct some fund-raising events and pursue grant opportunities in 2020.
During this season of gratitude and good cheer, we ask that you consider a donation to help us continue our efforts in support of the wonderful programs at Up Yonda Farm.
