Weaver's Way Farm Wishlist

In order to keep costs down, and to reuse materials when possible, the farm is seeking the following items. If you or someone you know can donate any of these items, please let me know!

The biggest item we are trying to raise money for is a small tractor with attachments. We are at a scale where we need to be more efficient with our time and energy, if we are going to keep this up year after year! If you know of anyone interested in donating a tractor, or helping us raise money for a tractor, please let me know. We are planning on having a fundraiser this fall to help raise funds for this. If you are interested in helping to organize the fundraiser, please contact shareholder Nancy Dearden at Thanks!
