When Gates Studio principal, Valerie Gates read Omnivore's Dilemma and Animal, Vegetable and Miracle, she knew she had to do something to help. Gates came up with the idea to offer local growers her studio�s design and branding services on a creative sliding scale. With help from SEMAP, she put out the word to local farms that she was offering her studio�s services on a first-come, first-served basis as follows: First five farms: a barter agreement of design time and services for organic food or CSA shares Next five farms: 75% discount on rates for services Next five farms: 50% discount on rates for services Next five farms: 25% discount on rates for services By the end of the second day, Gates had over 15 farms and local growers lined up to take advantage of her unique offer. �I wanted to do my part in helping even out the playing field for small growers and help them compete with larger farms and organizations that have larger marketing budgets,� explained Gates. # # #
