Help Us Build a Vibrant Local Food Community
SMADC is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that receives funding from the state of Maryland, but the 2020 statewide budget resulted in a 25% reduction in SMADC’s overall budget. We are making up the difference with public and private grants, fundraisers, and individual donations from people like you. Pledge your support for local farms and the future of agriculture in Southern Maryland and beyond.
