Giving Back

Since our founding in 2011, ThirdSide has been providing local businesses with affordable, professional websites and graphic design services. We believe that being part of a community means that we should also give back to that community. Over the years, we have developed a number of free or reduced-cost websites and provided ongoing website management services for various local not-for-profit organizations.

Over the past few weeks, we’ve been introduced to some wonderful local organizations, all of whom do incredible work to make our community better. And we’ve received thousands of votes for our top three choices. Today, we’re very happy to announce the winner, which is The Land Connection.

As luck would have it, our other two contenders, C4A and Courage Connection, both have websites currently built on WordPress. At ThirdSide, we develop websites exclusively with WordPress, and we offer ongoing management services for any website we build. So for 2019, we are pleased to offer free website management to C4A and Courage Connection. And stay tuned as we unveil the new website for The Land Connection in the coming months.

The Land Connection

The Land Connection
The Land Connection trains farmers in resilient, restorative farming techniques; informs the public about the sources of our food and why that matters; and works to protect and enhance farmland so that we, and generations to come, will have clean air and water, fertile soil, and healthy, delicious food.
