As statistics tell us, half of all current farmers in the U.S. are likely to retire in the next decade. Enlisting and supporting new farmers is essential to the future of family farms, the local economy and healthy communities. The Runnymede Project seeks to reinvigorate a small farm in North Hampton, NH, through diversified farming while also creating a site for artist-driven projects. To help get them started, a benefit concert, in partnership with 3S Artspace, will take place at The Dance Hall in Kittery, ME, on Saturday, August 20th:
The Runnymede Project Benefit Concert
The Dance Hall, 7 Walker Street, Kittery, ME
Saturday, August 20th, 2011 at 6 p.m.
