Updated 5 years ago

The employees of Johnny’s Selected Seeds presented a $40,000 donation to Maine Farmland Trust. Maine Farmland Trust is a statewide organization that works to keep working farms working.  Since its founding in 1999, the Trust has worked with over 100 farmers and helped preserve over 13,500 acres of Maine farmland. The Trust also runs Maine FarmLink, a program that helps aspiring farmers buy or lease land from retiring farmers.  In the past five years, FarmLink has make 42 connections—that’s another 42 farms that will likely continue for another generation.  The employees of Johnny’s Seeds have chosen Maine Farmland Trust as their principal charity for this year, in recognition of the great work the Trust is doing.
