The Good Food Neighborhood™ is a community of people who care about living sustainably -and in particular about strengthening sustainable food systems- and is aimed at growing and supporting the local community by connecting people to local foods, their local farmer, and to each other.
The community outreach program of PASA (the Pennsylvania Association for Sustainable Agriculture), the Good Food Neighborhood™ provides education, programming and services throughout the Mid-Atlantic and Northeastern United States. Here consumers, farmers, businesses and organizations can network around local foods and sustainable food systems. Whether searching for local foods, attending local events, buying directly from a local farmer or market, or getting involved in food policy/advocacy, the entire community’s involvement in the local foods movement is vital to the sustainability of farms.
Please consider making a contribution today toward the good work of PASA in support of farms, healthy foods and a clean environment.
PASA is a nonprofit organization working to improve the economic prosperity, environmental soundness and social propriety of Pennsylvania food and agricultural systems. We work with farmers who grow our food, consumers who eat the food, and those concerned with the ecological wellbeing of our environment and natural resources, among many other interest groups.
PASA is the only statewide, member-based, sustainable farming organization in Pennsylvania and the Northeast, and is one of the largest in the nation. The Association seeks to address the sustainability of the entire food and agriculture industry, and places great value on efforts to build bridges between various and disparate participants in the food system.
PASA creates networks and markets to strengthen the ties between concerned consumers and family farmers. PASA is building statewide channels that link farmers with farmers, farmers with consumers, and consumers with markets. As our organization has grown, we’ve had some real successes with a variety of educational programs – both on and off the farm, that are shaping new partnerships that enhance the lives and livelihoods of producers and consumers.
PASA is a network of people who care – we all have a role in assuring the health and longevity of our regional farms and food supply. PASA is the catalyst that brings together those dedicated to advancing sustainable food and farming systems. PASA is a dynamic new model for partnerships between traditional agricultural and our ever-changing society and has worked to forge positive and needed changes in the way food is grown, harvested, distributed, and marketed in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
Our family farms face enormous threats and whether we can save farming in time is up to all of us. They can and will be saved – if they have enough friends (and farmers). Please be one of them. Please join us.
