“Why do I give to Langton Green? I often tell the story of a resident, Joe, I met while volunteering at the Langton Green Community Farm. He works at Safeway on weekdays and goes to the farm on the weekend. This really struck me. I wondered, “What makes Joe love being at the farm so much that he is willing to go there on his day off?” Well, for one thing, he likes putting his hands in the dirt and creating something. (Who doesn’t? There is something very special and grounding about that.) He proudly shows off what he grows saying, “This is ‘my’ squash,” or eggplant, or watermelon. He knows he gets to give back, to provide something of value to others, whether his produce is sold to customers or served on the tables of Langton Green residences.
Most important, at the farm, Joe is not hidden in some backroom or kept on
the sidelines of a company. Many employers keep people like Billy hidden from the public eye, working as a dishwasher or cleaning the parking lot. At the farm, people like Joe can make a difference and are encouraged to do so in ways that are visible to everyone.”

Our newest venture, the Langton Green Community Farm in Millersville, Md., is funded through generous donations and grants. The 13-acre farm offers vocational training and supports to our individuals and is a resource for the wider community. Working side-by-side with volunteers and staff to plant, harvest, and sell fresh produce, the individuals we serve form meaningful relationships with each other and the community.
The Langton Green Community Farm provides vocational training and opportunities for interested parties from the wider community –not just the individuals that Langton Green serves. The farm provides food for our organization’s residents as well as other nonprofits in need. Langton Green Community Farm donates surplus food and has community partnerships with nonprofits such as the Maryland Food Bank and the Annapolis Light House.

Our Employee Give-Back Program
How incredible is it that staff from our agency give their hard-earned money back to the individuals we support? We had our first Funding Committee for the Employee Give Back Program, and we are very excited about what this program can do. The committee plans two cycles per year. Spring and Fall.
How Does it Work?
Agency employees can make a regular donation through payroll deduction to our Give Back Fund, then twice a year, staff can request funds for a specific purpose to benefit their consumers, or their home. A committee of volunteer direct-care and administrative staff will review the requests and determine which of the requests receive funding. It’s that simple.
Employees request special items for agency homes, money to cover events and activities for consumers who don’t have the personal funds to pay for, or anything you can think of that is of direct benefit to our consumers but isn’t covered under normal funding sources. Employees can do a recurring contribution OR a one-time donation, As a non-profit organization, donating to Langton Green’s Give Back Program is tax deductible, and at the end of each year everyone who donates will receive documentation to declare the donation on their taxes.
