Recurring membership helps us to plan and budget for the year to come. One of the most important roles that members play is to help RGCF pay for staff. Farming is labor intensive, and your donations enable us to provide educational programming, partnerships with other community organizations and schools, enriched wildlife habitat, and to build a model for sustainable urban agriculture in the Rio Grande Valley.
RGCF has big plans, and you can help us to
- Cultivate new growers and support families with the land and expertise to grow healthy food.
- Host the annual Maize Maze as a family-oriented tradition for all Burqueños.
- Be a supportive partner of land-based organizations and businesses.
- Benefit specific campaigns, including developing a weather station for optimal irrigation practice, providing garden rows for needy families, running a community farm tool-library, creating signage and informational materials for our diverse community, and more.
