Seacoast Eat Local has had a tremendous year presenting two winter workshops for farmers, supporting NH Eat Local Month, planning 11 Winter Farmers’ Markets, and publishing the third edition of Seacoast Harvest. We thank you for your continued support of Seacoast Eat Local, and more importantly, for your continued support of the region’s farmers, fishermen, beekeepers, maple syrup producers, orchardists, and vintners. By working together and making mindful choices about how we eat, we contribute to the health of our environment, community, culture, and economy.
In 2009 Seacoast Eat Local and Slow Food Seacoast printed 6,000 copies of Seacoast Harvest, the local food guide for Rockingham, Strafford, and York Counties. What started as a small leaflet has grown substantially since 2007. Last year we listed 150 farms, two dozen farmers’ markets, and helped local farms survive and thrive during a difficult economy. Seacoast Harvest was such a success because of the many individuals, businesses, nonprofits, and other organizations that sponsored its publication, as well as those that gave their time. Please donate today so that we can continue our work in support of our communities’ farms and farmers.
Please donate $25 toward the 2010 edition of Seacoast Harvest today. In thanks, we will mail you a copy of Seacoast Harvest as soon as it is published in late May.

Seacoast Harvest is given out at farmers’ markets, farm stands, local businesses, and community events throughout the Seacoast, all year long. It helps consumers to find the foods they want and to understand more about the farms where it is grown or raised. The companion website, www.seacoastharvest.org, provides links to more information about local food, a map of the area’s farmers’ markets, an interactive Harvest Calendar, and a searchable database of the farms listed in the print edition.
Individuals, businesses, or organizations that donate $100 or more can be listed as sponsors of Seacoast Harvest. Sponsors are listed in print and on our website. If you are interested in making this level of donation, please contact us directly. If your business was a sponsor in 2009 we hope that you will sponsor Seacoast Harvest again. Our Sponsorship Coordinator can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or at (603) 793-9768.
We hope that you will consider being a donor or a sponsor of Seacoast Harvest. Your donation provides the resources needed to ensure that farmers will have a viable market for their products, providing the Seacoast with a reliable source of real food.
