We are thankful for you, and for good news

South Boston based, Joseph M. Tierney Learning Center at Heron Organic Farm, Concord. August 2016.

Dear Friends,

We are bursting at the seams with all the exciting news to share. Queue the drumroll, and the confetti. A few weeks ago, theMOVE received our official Internal Revenue Service (IRS) 501c3  non profit charity designation. We are grateful to Groundwork Somerville for serving as our fiscal sponsor for the last 5 years.
Our new designation gives us access to more opportunities, we are exempt from federal income tax, and can receive unlimited donations from individuals and other donors. Thanks to theMOVE’s board for spearheading the process and for each of you for believing in our mission.

In keeping with the good news, we completed another successful season, serving almost 500 individuals, giving approximately 2,100 volunteer hours at 10 family-owned, or not-for-profit farms (2 urban).  But, the experience of the youth we serve, cannot be summated in numbers, and since you were not there to watch them learn, check out the note below for an idea of what one student discovered and felt.  Can you imagine if every city child had this experience – regardless of their family’s income? Also, this season, we connected more deeply with urban education administrators, and the food services teams at Boston andSomerville Public Schools as we seek to influence how decision makers think about the current food system, and leverage their support for farm-based education in Metro- Boston.
This, is how we share the power of food.
As the season closes, we reflect on how privileged we are to do this work, we are thankful for the legacy of those who came before us, and all our colleagues who  do their part in rebuilding our food system and influencing wholesome education for our youngsters.

Cheers and best wishes,
Tamika R. Francis

Effects of Water Damage on a Home’s Structure

Water damage is such a destructive occurrence in any home such that its effects can even be insidious especially when it is not dealt with immediately.

It can cause serious injuries such as electric shock, slips and falls, vector-borne diseases, water-borne illnesses and the like.

Destructive Effects of Water Damage in a Property

In one of its entries, WikiPedia explained the effects of water damage to any structure. “Due to the destructive nature of water, chosen restoration methods also depend heavily on the amount of water, and on the amount of time the water has remained stagnant. For example, as long as carpet has not been wet for longer than 48 hours, and the water involved was not sewage based, a carpet can usually be saved; however, if the water has soaked for longer, then the carpet is probably irreparable and will have to be replaced. Water damage restoration can be performed by property management teams, building maintenance personnel, or by the homeowners themselves; however, contacting a certified professional water damage restoration specialist is often regarded as the safest way to restore water damaged property.” Yelp – Super Dry San Diego

“Extensive property loss and the need for many expensive repairs, unless the damage is irreversible, will result from water damage that is not treated promptly and thoroughly. Taking a proactive approach to protect your property from the ravages of water damage is highly advisable. Performing some routine maintenance on your home and checking regularly for potential problems could help to save a considerable amount of money and heartache, later on in the unfortunate event of a disaster.”
