“I liked the idea of the 3 challenges. They kept us open minded and ready to learn about farming.”


Perennial Society


The Perennial Society is a group of loyal supporters (like you!) who ensure youth and families have positive experiences with healthy food and farming for years to come.  Their sustaining support advances the Food Literacy Project’s vision:

A just and sustainable food system that cultivates healthy people and places.

Farmers and gardeners know that perennial plants come back every year.  Likewise, membership in the Perennial Society requires pledging financial support to come back every year for 5 years.



The Perennial Society was launched in 2016 to celebrate the Food Literacy Project’s 10th anniversary.  Since then, over 30 community-minded individuals have pledged sustaining support for our mission:
Transforming youth and their communities through food, farming and the land.    

You can join by making an annual pledge of any amount over the next 5 years, helping our small organization make a difference in our community for another decade!  Make your first pledge payment below, or contact Sarah McCartt-Jackson by email or phone (502-491-0072) for more information.
