Help power the impact of peer inspections for hardworking farmers!
Boost learning for CNG growers like Tooth of the Lion Farm!
You know as well as we do that farming is a knowledge-intensive occupation, and insights shared by experienced farmers can significantly boost the odds of success. Helping farmers to connect with their equally busy peers is quite challenging - but it is invaluable.
It’s also central to CNG’s peer review certification model.
Your special gift will help to enhance the ease of connecting hardworking farmers with peers for inspections, and the value of those interactions when they happen.
We are starting to pair the most experienced farmers with newer members, while providing more guidance on how to deliver a top-quality inspection, and incentivizing peers to conduct multiple inspections annually.
When you give, you'll support CNG inspections that:
By way of thanks, we'll send new monthly sustainers two hand-drawn CNG bandanas, festooned with seasonal roots, oyster mushrooms, seeds, and crisp greens. (Designed by our own talented Aly Miller, of course!)
Because of you, our group of community-minded growers will have the best chance of success.
Thank you for your support!

You can never have too many friends!
In fact, we'd like 20 Friends to join Certified Naturally Grown by October 20.
Become a Friend with a gift of any amount, and you'll help power our new initiative to pair beginning farmers with the most experienced producers in their area.
In this knowledge-intensive profession, it is invaluable for those just starting out to receive in-person guidance from farmers with many seasons of natural production under their belts.
Your monthly gifts will boost the next generation of farmers.
