"What we are doing in this valley, with agritourism, preserving sustainable, family farms, is important—and it depends on keeping this place intact.  Some places are important as is, and oil and gas development doesn’t fit with what is already there and working.  We shouldn’t just drill anywhere, instead we need to identify places that are important to Colorado and protect them."

-Scott Horner, Small Potatoes Farm and CSA

My donation is in appreciation of CO Food and Farm Alliance's work to advocate for the North Fork Alternative as well as it's 'out of the box' strategies for supporting farms, winemakers, brewers, food producers, chefs and restaurateurs to take climate action and to advocate for a balanced approach to energy development that protects our farms, food, and drink.
