Would you be interested in joining a NYFC chapter near you and/or being in a leadership role? (president, vice president, secretary, treasurer, etc.) in your NYFC chapter if nominated?
Chapter meetings are often hosted by a member farm, and may consist of a community work day, brief meeting, and potluck meal. Would you be willing to host a quarterly chapter meet-up at your farm or land you steward?
