Come on out to GreenLeaf for a Thank You Party

Jun 2, 2011 by     2 Comments    Posted under: Crop Mob Atlanta, Crop Mob Georgia, Events

As you are probably aware by now, we have been raising funds to help out farmer Greg Brown at GreenLeaf Farms in Barnesville. His health condition has resulted in very high medical bills and has also limited his ability to work on the farm. Just as Greg was starting to make a tentative and hopeful recovery, a tornado decimated his greenhouse.

Sometimes it must seem like the trials and tribulations of small-scale farmers are more than any person could bear, but that’s why farming has always grown symbiotically with a sense of community; friends and acquaintances willing to jump in and help in any way that they can are the antidote to the numerous tests a farmer and his farm have to face.

We were able to raise 70% of our $10,000 goal for GreenLeaf. Not too shabby if I do say so myself. This money went to great use paying down those medical bills and keeping the farm running.

Now it is time to celebrate! Greg and his wife Maeda have invited us out to the farm for a Thank You Party.

From Maeda:

Greg and I would like to thank everyone so much for helping us through this trying time in our lives. Words cannot really express the gratitude that we feel. If it wasn’t for the help and positive thoughts from everyone we don’t feel like GreenLeaf Farms would be here anymore. Greg is doing much better – not quite at 100% just yet – but so much better than he was doing even a month ago. We take it day by day and hope that eventually more medical breakthroughs will come to surface to treat this rare heart condition.

We would like to extend an invitation to one and all to come to out to Greenleaf Farms on Sunday June 12 from 1:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. for a Thank You party. David Sweeney and I will be cooking up a feast for everyone to enjoy and to just relax and have fun.

Thank you again from the bottom of our hearts!

Greg and Maeda
