50% of proceeds will go to Friends of Great Kids Farm.

Neighborhood Fiber Company has long supported a number of community projects and non-profits. Continuing in this tradition, we will donate half of the net pattern sales to Friends of Great Kids Farm, a non-profit organization “created to support and promote Baltimore City Schools’ Great Kids Farm. The Farm, occupying 33-acres of abundant fields and forest just west of the city, engages students with good food from farm to fork and prepares them to lead sustainability efforts in their communities.”

By purchasing this pattern or making your own direct donation, you are helping young people connect with local food sources and learn about food production.
