Our Market Ambassadors play a key role in connecting the Land Trust with the community. Our Saturday Farmers’ Market is one of our best opportunities to let people know about all the valuable work we do (including the Market!) and to encourage them to join the Land Trust.
Your main task is to build connections. Talk to people about something you have in common, or what they like to do that the Land Trust provides (trails, events, Market, Garden, education, etc).
Whenever you can, ask folks if they are members and encourage membership. Each week we have the goal of at least 5 memberships.
Remember, membership is really and truly what keeps our organization going. Even if you don’t “sell” a membership today, a nice conversation with you may just be the positive experience that pushes them to join, renew, or give a bit more when they get a letter from us.
