Support Employment for People with Disabilities
We are currently raising funds for a Farm Manager. We need someone who can help us plan for our 2018 season, and help us evaluate various value-added products, like potato chips, pickles, and jams in our upcoming "Evaluation Field". The co-founders are working seven days a week to take care of all of the many tasks it takes to plan, grow, harvest, fundraise, manage taxes and accounting responsibilities, and troubleshoot. Having another professional staff person available to focus solely on the vegetables (and fruit!) will allow the organization to move to the next level in terms of size and professionalism.

- If you are a federal employee, you can make pre-tax donations to us directly from your paycheck through the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC). Our CFC number is 81326.
- We are also a "confirmed" PayPal charity, which means you can also safely use PayPal for donations as well (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Designate AFLO as Your Selected Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) Charity
CFC is the world's largest and most successful annual workplace charity campaign, with almost 200 CFC campaigns throughout the country and overseas raising millions of dollars each year. Pledges made by federal civilian, postal and military donors during the campaign season (October 2nd through January 12th) support eligible non-profit organizations that provide health and human service benefits throughout the world. AFLO is thrilled to announce that we now have our own CFC number: #81326. Please consider designating us as the recipient of your pre-tax donations.
We always welcome volunteers on the farm. We have had companies, families, and individuals drive in from our old stomping grounds on Capitol Hill, as well as from Clarke, Frederick, Fauquier, and Loudoun counties. Bring your children (if you have them), your loved ones with intellectual disabilities, and your willingness to get dirty. Email us to let us know when you'd like to come: email@example.com

We're pretty active on social media. Sometimes, we even get artistic with the buds and bugs we find in the garden!
