“Love is in the air” is a common refrain this time of the year. Largely, the message is pushed in the name of heart-shaped candy boxes and plush teddy bears, gifts that many retailers would have you believe are the purest expressions of love and devotion.
As organic farmers and conservationists, we’d like to offer another option (sorry, plush teddy bear makers!): Our PCC Scrip cards are gifts for good! They are pre-loaded gift cards that you can use while shopping at PCC and they can be reloaded infinitely. Every time a Scrip card is reloaded, PCC donates 5% of the value to Oxbow.
If you are a regular PCC shopper, participating in the Scrip program is a free way to support a nonprofit every time you shop. Your support of Oxbow helps fund our award-winning environmental education programs.
At Oxbow, there is a lot that we love: carrots and salmonberries, soil microbes and native pollinators, turning summer campers into lifelong land stewards and building a community of conscientious eaters through our CSA.
If you love any of these things too, then consider a Valentine’s Day gift that offers a convenient way to support local agriculture: Buy a Scrip card today and supporting our land conservation work while you shop!
