Stepping into the unknown
Tunes for a Monday Morning

Want to name a goat?

Well, here's your chance . It's one of the inducements offered in the Chagford Community Farm Crowdfunding An illustration for ''Heidi'' by Jessie Willcox SmithCampaign...along with the satisfaction of supporting the Local Food Renaissance here in south-west England.

The charming video above explains the campaign...and gives you a glimpse of the countryside and community that makes Chagford such a magical place to live. Go here to learn more about the nonprofit Chagford Community Farm  (a.k.a. Chagfarm, founded by brothers Davon and Sylvan Friend)....not to be confused with the Chagfood Community Market Garden (a.k.a. Chagfood, about whom I have posted before: here and here), although the two groups often work together.

Whether you're local or not, if you have the funds and believe in the cause of "local food for local people" (and food education for children), please consider contributing to Chagfarm's crowd-funding campaign (and/or spreading the word), which will help Davon and Sylvan to improve and maintain this wonderful nonprofit community farm. You can always come and visit the goat you name (or request a picture!), and there are a number of other pledge inducements as well.
