Local Living Venture

Dear Friend and Supporter,

We are writing to you as a leader in our North Country community, seeking your financial support in 2013 for a dynamic community group and an important regional event. 

The
 Local Living Festival: A Celebration of Resourceful Living is sponsored by the Local Living Venture and will be held for the third time at the Cornell Cooperative Extension Learning Farm in Canton, New York.

To be held on April 27, 2013 this event brings together large numbers of people from across northern New York. Based on numbers
 that attended last year, we expect that attendance will equal nearly 10% of Canton-Potsdam area residents! 

The Festival will feature local and nationally recognized authors and speakers, as well as more than thirty educational seminars and workshops on topics including energy conservation, traditional agricultural skills, appropriate technology, forest management, and healthy eating.

The
 Local Living Festival is truly an excellent opportunity to highlight your company’s commitment to a more sustainable North Country community while reaching a significant and motivated portion of the population.

We also have: a year-round schedule of workshops and events; a resource-laden website
that receives over 1500 local hits per month; and, regular mailings to over 2,000 North Country residents.  Your support can be for this upcoming large event, or work for you throughout the year!
 

The
 Local Living Venture enjoys the benefits of a 501(c)3 not-for-profit educational organization through Seedcorn, Inc.
As such, your support is tax deductible. 

Please join other leading community organizations in supporting our service to the St. Lawrence River Valley.  With your help, we can expand awareness of regional and local issues, while enhancing the quality of life and economic well being of northern New York! 

Please see the attached page for sponsorship information and other ways you can help. Also, feel free to call us with any questions you may have. We hope to see you at the
 Local Living Festival or at one of the many educational programs and workshops we hold during the year!

Sincerely,
Chelle Lindahl
