A Farm Less Ordinary (AFLO)

After hearing about the fantastic and impactful work that MRE|AP REALTOR® Greg Masucci and his wife Maya were doing at their nonprofit farm, we could not help but get involved.

AFLO's mission is to "provide employment and a welcoming community to people with developmental and intellectual disabilities, while sustainably growing organic food for the metropolitan DC area.

To distribute the produce that's grown on the farm, AFLO offers a membership to their Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program. CSA members can pick up their "crop boxes" in central locations for a minimum of 15 weeks over the growing season. These boxes are packed full of 5-7 varieties of whatever organic vegetables are being harvested that week - enough for at least a family of four.

To learn more or to get involved, see AFLO's website, Facebook, or InstagramSign up for the CSA program here.


Tree of Life Ministries

Tree of Life Ministries (TOL) was birthed in 2008 following the decision of a local church to set aside the first 10% of giving to meet the needs of the poor locally. A faith-based nonprofit 501c3 was then established by MRE|AP REALTOR® Paul Smith with a simple purpose – "to reach out to the poor and needy in our community with the love of Jesus Christ."

The Tree of Life (TOL) Path encompasses 5 branches – Food, Lifeskills, Shelter, Healthcare and Relief. Each branch now includes multiple ministries - 28 in total. TOL's approach is to offer a ‘hand-up’ rather than a ‘handout’ as 16,000 are impacted annually across 3 Regions – Purcellville, Winchester and Leesburg.
