Donate-a-Dime: Farm to Table NM
For every reusable shopping bag you use at La Montañita Co-op in January 2018, you’ll reduce your carbon footprint, and we’ll donate a dime to Farm to Table New Mexico! It all adds up — we’ve given more than $180,000 to community organizations through our Donate-a-Dime program.
Farm to Table New Mexico works to promote sustainable agriculture and to advance the livelihood and wellness of the New Mexico community through education, community outreach & networking. Here’s more about them in their own words:
