PORTLAND, Ore. (PRWEB) March 09, 2012
Bogs Footwear (http://www.BogsFootwear.com) is headed to the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market in San Francisco, Calif. on March 10, 2012 in support of several Bay Area farmers and The Center for Urban Education about Sustainable Agriculture (CUESA), the non-profit organization that has hosted the famed market since 1999, Bogs will be located outside the historic Ferry Building in San Francisco’s Financial District from 8am-2pm.
Bogs is raising money for CUESA’s scholarship program, which helps local farmers receive access to the education and training they need to improve sustainable farming practices and growing methods, set up worker health programs, recruit young farmers to the industry and much more.
For every new "like" on the Bogs Facebook page received Saturday, March 10th, Bogs will donate $1 to CUESA for their scholarship program. The money raised helps provide scholarships to farmers in pursuit of advanced training. These scholarships have helped many of the local farmers Bogs is sponsoring in their pursuit to connect Bay Area communities with a local, sustainable food ecosystem.
“The original Bogs boot, the Classic High, was designed especially for the demanding conditions farmers and other agricultural professionals face every day on the farm. It is a technical, insulated boot that will keep these hard-working men and women’s feet warm, dry and comfortable,” said Bill Combs, president and founder of Bogs footwear. “This spring, we’re getting back to our roots and providing farmers across the country with footwear that works as hard as they do.”
Bogs is proud to support the following farms featured in the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market: Marin Sun Farms, Marin Roots Farms, Flatland Flower Farm, Thomas Farm and Blossom Bluff Orchards with footwear for their demanding jobs, as well as reusable market totes to reward customers who are shopping their stands in the market on Saturday.
At the Bogs booth, market attendees can test out new Spring ’12 Bogs styles, enter social media giveaways for free boots and other SWAG, receive an exclusive discount on Bogs footwear and take home their own “May Flower” seeds to plant before April showers arrive.
