Saint Patrick’s Day observes the death of Saint Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland. People spend the holiday celebrating Irish culture and traditions including parades, Irish step dancing, drinking green beer, or eating Irish cuisine. Did you know your chance of finding a 4-leaf clover is 1 in 10,000?
As tradition goes, wearing green on St. Patrick ’s Day will make you invisible to pesky leprechauns, otherwise be weary of getting pinched! Different cities hold different traditions – Chicago colors the Chicago River green with a natural vegetable dye, and Hot Springs holds the world’s shortest parade (98 feet). While I don’t think Mayor Walsh will approve dying the Charles River green, we still have an awesome parade! Boston’s St. Patrick's Day parade will start Sunday March 17 at 1:00 pm at Broadway Station.

This year, instead of sending chocolates or little monkey robots that fart on command to our best customers, we decided to say thank you by making a donation on their behalf to one of three local nonprofits. Here's a little background on the groups we chose and why. They represent three areas that we care a lot about -- farming, sustainability and food security.
