Past TLC Monadnock Campaigns
The Local Crowd Monadnock (TLC Monadnock) launched online on March 15, 2017. Since then, we've raised over $70,000 from over 480 supporters for these amazing projects:
Farm to Table on WheelsArchway Farm, a small family farm on Arch Street in Keene, raises heritage breed pigs. “We think pigs are awesome, and there aren't nearly enough of them in New Hampshire,” said Mark Florenz, owner of Archway Farm. “With the support of our community, we would like to purchase a mobile sausage cart that would allow us to showcase the great tastes of locally grown food directly to our customers.”
Mark hopes to bring Archway Farm products, as well as other local producers’ products (like bread and condiments) to the Farmers’ Market of Keene. The cart will also be available to come to your home or place of work to provide lunch for small groups.

Placemaker Local Rewards Monadnock Buy Local plans to launch a local rewards program in our region this winter -- a program that
offers gifts and discounts to users who spend their dollars at locally
owned businesses. We are looking at one specific loyalty program based in
Portland, OR called Supportland.
It currently boasts a network of 150 independent businesses and 80,000
users who have collectively shifted $8 million of their spending to
locally owned businesses. Supportland is now available to other communities -- rebranded with the name Placemaker.
