Rogue Valley Farm to School Groundhog Greetings
Febuary 1st, 2013
Community support is the key to our successful programs. You make the difference, please share with us in owning the accomplishments of Rogue Valley Farm to School. We would really like to grow our recurring gift option as a little ground in which we can plant with certainty each month!  Making a recurring donation is an easy way to give that allows more of each dollar to directly benefit our programs.  This option allows you to give as little as $5 per month, you may increase, decrease or suspend your gift at any time. It is so nice to have enthusiasm for our programs expressed in all the ways you all do, thank you!
