Thank You to Our Underwriters

The seven species represented in our theme are sacred fruits and grains grown in the ancient land.
They symbolize our community’s obligations to making sure all people are fed and the land is protected.

As we plant for future generations, we are once again cultivating these commitments to one another and the Earth.
