Join SNAP to Win a Share of Organic Produce from Rosie Creek Farm
Golden Valley Electric Association is offering new SNAP supporters a chance to win a 12-week share of produce from Rosie Creek Farm this summer. To be eligible for the drawing, GVEA members must sign up to support the co-op’s renewable energy program, SNAP, by May 1.
For as little as $2 per month, members can support local solar and wind power generated by nearly forty local producers. Last year, these producers generated enough renewable energy to power 15 average Interior residences for a year.
“This is a chance to do something good for the planet and for your dinner table,” said Marketing & Communications Coordinator Dianne PorterMembers may sign up for SNAP at GVEA’s website: www.gvea.com, by calling (907) 452-1151 or at the Annual Members’ Meeting on April 27 at the CarlsonCenter.Rosie Creek Farm’s organic seasonal vegetables include: salad greens, braising greens, lettuce, broccoli, beets, onions, pumpkins, tomatoes, snap beans and much more. Weekly distribution sites: two in Fairbanks, one at the farm and one at DenaliNational Park. Golden Valley Electric Association is a member-owned cooperative owning and operating five power plants that provide power to nearly 100,000 Interior residents. In 2005, GVEA became the first utility in the state to adopt a Green Power Pledge and to offer SNAP – GVEA’s renewable energy program.
