Petaluma Bounty is one of a handful of extraordinary, unique non profit organizations in Petaluma that provide so many services of exceptional public benefit that they’ve become indispensable to the community. Bounty’s a favorite, as they’ve been helping to build out the community’s sharing economy and a more resilient foodshed for better than thirteen years now. Their goal has long been to build a local food system based upon universal access to adequate nutritious, locally-grown food. Everybody eats, in other words.
One of the extraordinary tools that Petaluma Bounty uses to create community, grow good food, and teach a wide array of agriculture and food system skills is its Petaluma Bounty Farm, which last year enjoyed its tenth harvest. Over the decade we’ve been volunteering on the farm we’ve seen hundreds of people of all ages benefit from their experiences at the farm. Volunteering there is highly recommended, if you have the opportunity.
Coming up on Valentines Day, Thursday, February 14 at 6:30 pm, is a great opportunity to enjoy a evening of dining, dancing and jazz in the beautiful Hotel Petaluma while supporting Petaluma Bounty and its numerous programs, which are of exceptional importance as we prepare to adequately respond to the climate emergency we face here at the local level.
Petaluma Bounty, along with Daily Acts – our local experts on creating resilient communities – has been doing much of the advance work of creating a truly sustainable local food system.
