Season's greetings, everyone.
On behalf of the Mobile Farm Workforce team, I hope this note (and update) finds you well and open to receive the goodness of this Holiday season.
We wrapped up Year 2 of the Mobile Farm Workforce (MFW) pilot project in Colorado in late November (11.24.19 to be exact) which nudged the pilot into a 13th week, exceeding last year's pilot by three weeks in duration. Also, we sent a crew from the Front Range (the geography where the pilot worked in Year 1) to the Western Slope this season and, so, expanded our ability to help support Colorado farms and ranches.
We achieved new milestones directly because of your generosity; it fueled us with financial means and boosted our morale. In a nutshell, without your help, we would not have increased our impact this season and may have fallen short of the bar we set in Year 1.
Thank you very much.
We are currently gathering data on the hours worked and the duties completed this season and we will have our final report for Year 2 completed early in 2020 when we look forward to sharing our summary with you!
In the meantime, we hope you are enjoying -- and continue to enjoy -- a peace-filled and heartwarming Holiday Season.
