Greetings from Holley Creek Farm!

We hope this finds you well and in good spirits as 2012 winds to a close.  We here at Rural Resources are ready to find out what the New Year brings, after a wonderful year filled with so many events, surprises, and delicious food.  To learn more about our year, please click here to read of End of Year Letter.

Our end of the year financial goal is to raise an additional $3,000 to support the work of Rural Resources.

There are many ways you can support us this year, including a new designation, “Sustainers.”  When you become a Sustainer, you pledge to help us out by donating on a monthly or quarterly basis.  A donation in any amount designates you as a Rural Resources Member.
We understand if you can’t give financially, and there are other ways you can help us.  Volunteer to help us out on the farm, or take a look at our Wish List to see if your trash can become our treasure!
Thank you for your support this year.  We hope you can pay us a visit in the coming year to see exactly what we're doing with all the gifts that are given to us.

Happy holidays to you, and may your new year also be filled with big adventures!

Is Your Diet Keeping You Down?

For millions of Americans, the answer is yes, and it's time to talk about it.

Join Rural Resources for another Food Movie Night at Christ United Methodist Church where we'll watch All Jacked Up, a food documentary that examines the lives and eating habits of four typical American teenagers.  Directed by Jennifer Mattox, the film looks at the effects of our modern diet from a physical, mental, emotional, and social point of view, showing how the food we eat - and the food we feed our children - has an enormous impact on every aspect of our lives.

What: Rural Resources Food Movie Night
Where: Christ United Methodist Church, 307 S. Main, Greeneville, TN
When: Thursday, January 24th, 2013
5:30pm: Potluck dinner
6:30pm: Documentary screening with discussion to follow

This event is free, with a suggested donation of $5-10.  Proceeds from this event will support the continued effort of the Farm & Food Training Program to educate Greene County youth about their own food choices and the ways in which they can improve them.
