Sponsoring Locally Grown

LG 2015

Thanks to all our 2023 event sponsors!

When your business or organization becomes a Locally Grown sponsor, you demonstrate a commitment to the Carbondale community, to progressive and independent education, and to an institution that simultaneously stresses self-reliance and compassion for others. For your generous contribution, you create an abundance of goodwill among New School families and alums, and receive (at the two highest tiers) 365 days of exposure for your business on a website that pulled over 15,000 pageviews in 2015.

We are currently lining up sponsors for the 2023 event. Please contact us at: for more information, or download sponsorship information here.
