About: This June, Fibershed’s Materials Manager, Krystle Moody, participated in a 5-day, 300+ mile bike ride down the central coast of California to raise awareness for climate change and climate solutions.

In addition to spreading the word about Fibershed and the Climate Beneficial Wool program, Krystle has selected Fibershed as her beneficiary for the Climate Ride (http://www.climateride.org/events/california-central-coast) and is raising money to go to the Carbon Farm Fund and the Climate Beneficial Wool program.

Krystle and friends are designing Carbon Farming Education Day at Stemple Creek Ranch—one of Fibershed’s Carbon Farm Plan partners—as a way to gather people to learn more about Carbon Farming while sharing a casual meal produced at Stemple Creek and Fortunate Farm. Proceeds for the event will support Krystle’s Climate Ride participation.

Please mark your calendars for Sunday, August 13th, from 12 to 5 pm, for our casual, summer luncheon. Included in the ticket price will be:

  • Carbon Farming Tour hosted by Stemple Creek Ranch
  • Presentations by Fibershed on Climate Beneficial Wool and the Community Supported Cloth program
  • Presentation by Gowan Batiste of Fortunate Farm on Carbon Farming
  • Local beer sampling of North Coast Brewing Company summer beers
  • A delicious Stemple Creek Ranch beef and Fortunate Farm burger buffet (There will be veggie options too!)

Limited tickets available at the door. We encourage advance ticket purchases to allow Krystle to meet her fundraising goal before June. If you would like to donate directly to Krystle’s Climate Ride donation page, please visit: http://bit.ly/2ojLeIs
