Charles Mann on “two farms”

Charles Mann, author of The Wizard and the Prophet and best selling-book, 1491, compares two types of farms in America at a fundraising event for NACF.

The breakfast meeting introduced participants to our latest project, to preserve our 1830’s farmhouse.  At present, we have a design for the remodeling, we have contractors lined up to do the work that will restore the farmhouse to its 1830’s appearance, and we have a talented bunch of volunteer workers, many of whom worked on the construction of the adjacent Habitat for Humanity duplex house.

All we need are funds that NACF itself has committed to raising to move the process  along.  So the fundraising event held at the Pioneer Valley Cohousing common house on June 30th was  essential to beginning the work.

Our goal for the event is $10,000 and you can still help!

Please help us finish this project and either:

  2. mail your contribution directly to  NACF at PO Box 9648, North Amherst, MA 01059,
  3. or donate online at Network for Good at
