Giving Back at Boston Design Market 2017

5 Min.


October is coming – golden leaves, pumpkin spice everything and The Boston Design Market! This year’s Design Market events look to be more inspiring and varied than ever before. Jewett Farms + Co. is thrilled to be a part of a fresh take on a design centered event. JF’s Olivia Lord will be participating on the panel of the Giving Back discussion to be held at the Boston Design Center on Thursday, October 12th.

“As part of the Boston Design Center’s commitment to salute the brands in our industry that strive to make a difference either globally, locally, or in their workplace culture, Giving Back salutes those selfless members of our community and encourages self-reflection about how we can ensure the growth of our business also means the growth of our footprint on others”.

From manufacturing practices to team culture, this discussion feels hand built for us and we’re excited to share some of what makes JF a little unique with the Boston Design community. As Olivia prepares for this discussion she will also be preparing to run the New York Marathon! And, in true JF style, Olivia will be running this, her 8th marathon, while raising funds for Cystic Fibrosis research (See the other JF charity activities for CF). This is a charity near and dear to JF, and a cause we plan to keep working for. You can help Olivia on her NYC marathon journey here.
