Warwick Farm Aid

The wondrously fertile and productive Black Dirt region of southern New York was devastated by Hurricane Irene. Many of the local farmers, including some of our own market vendors, suffered severe losses.
 
This site describes the devastation and shows it in harrowing images. This is a severe blow to a flourishing region of independent farmers, and to the food relocalization efforts of the region. The site also is also dedicated to a fundraiser, Warwick Farm Aid, which will assist our stricken brethren.

  1. Here’s a blog written by one of the afflicted farmers.

    She’s not one of our vendors, but is a vendor at companion markets in the area.
