Warwick Farm Aid Update

I learned yesterday that Sunday’s Warwick Farm Aid concert raised around $50,000, double the goal for the day. Other fundraising efforts, including at our farmers’ market, added more to that fantastic total.
 
The fundraising will continue to help the stricken farmers of this wondrously productive region which has come under considerable economic pressure in recent years. The hurricane sure won’t help, but people are determined to overcome this hardship and continue to survive and thrive.

    • You’re welcome. We’ll see how far it goes helping with the long-term fallout. (For example, much of the pumpkin harvest was decimated, and I know of at least one CSA that got wiped out for the rest of the year.)
