Boston, MA — On Monday, after more than 200 votes, The Green Life Online announced four winners in the First Annual Farm Photo Contest.
The Green Life Online launched this contest to promote small-scale, earth-friendly farming, and to celebrate the beauty of it. “Our supporters and subscribers are doing their best to go green, in how they live, act, and shop,” said Jeff Gang, Coordinator of The Green Life. “But there’s no better example of ‘being the change you wish to see in the world’ than farmers who incorporate environmentally friendly practices.”
The contest accepted photography submissions from dozens of farms in June and July. After a week of voting on The Green Life’s Facebook page, the contest closed and a winner in each category was determined.
“We love these photos because they’re green, and they connect us with nature,” said Gang. “But they’re also just fun to see!”
The winners are:
Fresh Eggs Daily, in the Landscape category
Coyote Run Farm, in the Livestock category
Amazing Heart Farm, in the Produce category
Cliff Schoonmaker, in the Farm Life category
Founded in 1990, The Green Life Online is a non-profit organization that helps environmentally-aware and health-conscious citizens make effective decisions about the way they consume and the companies they support. http://www.thegreenlifeonline.org.
