March Campaign Success!

Well we did it! The final tally results came in and for the month of March we had 555 views of Tuberville Episode 3. That translates to $55.50 of donations, which is roughly 500 pounds of taters! We’d like to thank Space Research L3C for the donations and of course all of you for spreading the word! It’s with your ongoing involvement that we can continue to grow. Due to the success of this campaign, we may implement it again in the near future, so be on the lookout for that. With growing season fast approaching, there is plenty to be excited about here at Tuberville!Image

March Campaign

Announcement from Tuberville:

Space Research L3C (SR) our sister low profit company that sells Vermont Maple Syrup under the Tuberville brand, has agreed to support our “Get out the Word” campaign for March.

During the month of March, SR will donate 10 cents for every new viewer that watches Tuberville The Series, Episode 3: SPUD (up to 20,000 new views). This is a chance for people following Tuberville to help make a difference by introducing their friends to the Series. Based on past growing models, each view may produce between 2 – 4 servings of potatoes making their way into the charitable food system. We want to thank Space Research L3C for this challenge and this opportunity.

BILL LEE MONTH IS HERE!

Hey everyone…IT’S BILL LEE MONTH! That’s right, we’re honoring one of our favorite partners. In the case of Vermont resident and baseball legend, Bill Lee, there is no reason to create untrue stories for the sake of entertainment. Bill Lee has led and continues to lead a most extraordinary life. We wish to say thanks for his support of our work, for his appearance in TubervilleTheSeries (http://www.tubervilletheseries.com/) – and to acknowledge that his spirit of adventure, compassion and prowess on the field and off, is at the heart of all things Tuberville. Thanks Bill! We’ll be rolling out more Bill Lee factoids and entertainment as the days go on! Keep tuning in!

VT. Inmates Assist in a Very Tuberville Thanksgiving

This past week, Windsor Southeast State Correctional inmates in the Offender Work Program have bagged over 6 tons of potatoes for donation to the Vermont Food Bank–potatoes from Tuberville’s plot in Williamstown.

Salvation Farms, a non-profit that helps re-distribute surplus agriculture throughout Vermont, worked with both the Department of Corrections and Tuberville to make this  possible for the holiday season.

The processed potatoes will be donated to the Vermont Food Bank to assist in feeding needy families. A special thank-you to all involved, including those at Salvation Farms, Southeast State Correctional, and Bob Chapelle for his continual support.

Potato Planting at UMS

Last week, the UMS 1st grade classes helped plant potatoes, as a part of their agricultural life cycle unit.  When they return to school in the fall as 2nd graders, they will help harvest the potatoes, which will then be donated to the Colchester Food Shelf.  Check out some of the pictures from planting day!
