Wow! This project is amazing, and such a valuable cause! Hats off to all your hard work!

Hi, I would love to receive a monthly newsletter !

Thank you for doing this. I’m really concerned about soil health as well. Are there certain plants that absorb more pollutants that we should avoid for eating? Are there certain plants we should absolutely plant to help remediate soil? And then what? Take out the plants?
I cannot volunteer tomorrow but am very interested in the results of the study. Can you can add me to your email list if you share the results?
Will you be posting updates here? I’d love to be kept informed on how this effort is progressing.
Thanks for your interest! Please note that Vanessa Raditz is directing this research project. Her information is available through the post above and you should reach out to her directly for specific questions. We will try to keep our community updated on the projects moving forward.

You are all wonderful and busy people. Thank You for taking care of our less fortunate people and hope they are happy and thriving well because of your efforts.
You’re right of course that many hands contribute, but it takes leadership to keep a volunteer effort thriving, so thank you for your work and energy.

Thank you! It should be working now!
Thank you for this. Many years ago the Gazette produced a resource guide to food pantries – that is still online. It was very difficult to keep up with since so many food pantries are volunteer-based. I appreciate your efforts here. I would like to promote your guide on our website and in our magazine. May I have permission to do this?
You continue to inspire me in my own field. It’s people like yourself that gives me hope in systemic change for the good. Keep up the good work!
Thanks for the article. P,ease let us now the impact to Market Match from the 700,000 person SNAP reduction
Excellent article and well said! We hope the project will provide community-centered opportunities for improving farmers markets and farmers market outreach in the Bay Area.
I would love to See Lemongrass for sale at the Bounty Farm.Other than that everything i look forward to planing you have available at your plant sale. I have some gardening books I will bring with me when I volunteer next Saturday.
Hi, Suzi! Mike and I were fortunate to work with you at the beginning of your career with Petaluma Bounty. You were the perfect person for the job to lead this nonprofit into the future. You are a very special dedicated leader and Petaluma is very fortunate to have you in our midst. I admire your dedication and perseverance and tireless energy. Thank you for all you do to make Petaluma a wonderful place to live.
Wonderful account! What you are accomplishing at Bounty is worthy and your passion shines though with every word.
You are an inspiration to us all. Your giving heart and clear mind is lights a path of hope for the rest of us. Thank you!
OMG, at first I thought you were going to say, “I’ve had a lovely ten years with you but now I’m moving on to greener pastures!”
So Thank You Suzy for your wonderful comments and your thoughts on the future of the Bounty Farm. Your observations are so relevant. And I am so happy you are staying around into your 40’s.
I hope you consider the Sunrise Garden as one of your successes. We operate in a different way from Bounty but we know the same challenges as all farmers. And we always look to the Bounty and PPS for advice. Thank you for being there.
Suzi, How nice to get your story, and sincere appreciation to you for helping to manifest more bounty for Petaluma Bounty! It is such important work that you do and our region is so much the better for it.
Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts, reflections, memories and theories, Suzi.
Petaluma Bounty and our community are the richer for all you have given and continue to give to this noble, inspiring and down to earth effort.
