The June Bug Summer Solstice Event!

We are so excited to share that Val Bee has been hired at Farrington Nature Linc to produce their summer solstice event, June Bug!

This Lincoln, MA based nonprofit provides urban youth access to 75-acres of nature. Their mission is to enhance the well-being of children from low-income communities through a connection with the natural world. They host field trips on their property, run an after-school program for 8 week cycles, host bonfires and overnight camps in tents under the stars, and they even started a Teen Leadership program where teens are hired to run their summer field trips which then empowers them to step into leadership roles in their own communities.

We are so excited about this new partnership. It’s an amazing cause with such a huge impact! Proceeds from this event will go to helping provide more support for their programming and overall capacity to fulfill their mission. We hope to see you there!

Authentic Branding

Branding is such an interesting part of business. There are entire companies that exist simply to help you create, build, and market a brand. But what is a brand exactly? It is defined as a type of product manufactured by a particular company under a particular name. But in business, as many of us know, that definition is narrow in scope, and is thought to be more closely related to trademark than how we think of ‘brand’ today.
