Family farmers gather to talk shop!

Every year, come concert time, family farmers and farm group activists join together before the show to compare notes on the past year and vision for the future. Thanks to Kathy Ozer with the National Family Farm Coalition, a meeting will be taking place this Friday, September 19th, at the First Unitarian Church in Cambridge.

National family farmers and farm advocates all the way from Texas to Indiana will have the chance to gather with regional farmers from Vermont to Massachusetts. The meeting will be a valuable time for folks to connect on issues and campaigns that are important to family farmers, share ideas, swap stories, and discuss topics that may be raised during the concert itself. Helping to bring family farmers together to talk and plan is just one more way Farm Aid works to see that farmers thrive.
