Join Local Farm Relief Effort

High Mowing Seeds has launched a website to coordinate relief efforts for Kate Camilletti and Paul Betz and their High Ledge Farm in Woodbury, which suffered a devastating fire last week. They lost their home, prized belongings including family photographs, their family cat, and the seedlings they planted for this year.

Friends and neighbors have taken immediate action to make sure the family is housed over the next few weeks, to coordinate work crews, to ensure meals and support. Even to gather photographs and memories that might replace those lost in the fire. Kate and Paul are determined to plant this season as well.

You can read more about the fire in the Hardwick Gazette, or online in Seven Days. The farm relief webpage at High Mowing Seeds is available here.
