Despite building connections with so many local farms, craftspeople, markets and
more, when it came down to asking for feedback and possibly a tiny financial contribution to get the printed materials off and running, there was zero interest. Even an amount of $25 for an entire year of being on a map-type handout that I hoped to place in visitors centers across Delmarva seemed to out of sight. I guess when you compare that cost with "free", it just doesn't work.
This effort began out of knowing what's matters and who we need to support, and if I can find the time, it will continue in some capacity. But spending hours on a hobby that isn't able to grow or have a future is something that's tough to accept.
While I haven't been able to post as much lately, this page will hopefully remain a reminder to notice and support what's locally made around VA, MD & DE. More to come..... as always, please remember what's important. Support your local growers, artists and family farms.
