Folks, this is a benefit festival for NBO and Help Yourself. Anyone interested in helping staff? And come eat and be merry!

Folks - be there! Please help spread the word!

A Fall Fun(d)raising Festival to benefit Next Barn Over Farm and Help Yourself's growing goals of local food security. Be a local hero and help us raise 2,500$ to plant 50 PUBLIC ACCESS FRUIT TREES in Holyoke and support Next Barn Over's CSA operating costs for the 2015 growing season. Please RSVP if you're thinking of coming, for a head count!

Next Barn Over Farm, 15 Lawrence Plain Rd, Hadley MA
DATE: Sat., 10/18
TIME: 2-11pm (see events below)
COST: Suggested donation for all you can eat mutton and music - 10-20$. This is a fundraising festival with the goals listed above. If everyone pays just the sliding scale, it might just cover the cost of the sheep. We are asking folks to consider making a significant contribution, which is a direct investment in local food equity and security. What about donating 1 day's worth of work? One week? Remember, there may come a time when all the money in the world can't buy fresh fruit. Consider that each 25$ plants a new tree!
