MORRISVILLE – On Sunday, June 13, at Camp Meade in Middlesex, Salvation Farms will hold its second annual benefit concert. Gates open at 11:30 a.m., music starts at 12:30 p.m.
Salvation Farms is a Vermont non-profit collaborating with farmers, partners, and community members to help Vermont feed itself, working toward a future where communities are increasingly fed by local farms.
Inspired by Farm Aid, Salvation Farms’ Aid features local musicians covering national acts. This year’s line-up includes Rik Palieri covering Pete Seeger, Beg Steal or Borrow covering the Del McCoury Band, Abby Sherman and The Way North covering Susan Tedeschi, Blues for Breakfast covering The Highwaymen, Mr. French covering Led Zeppelin, and Craig Mitchell covering Prince.
The event’s silent auction will include a framed concert poster from Phish signed by all four band members, a collection of books from Chelsea Green Publishing, a basket of Way Out Wax goodies, an annual family membership to the Craftsbury Outdoor Center, among other special Vermont items and experiences. Ticket sales and silent auction benefit Salvation Farms. Salvation Farms’ Aid will also feature a Local Abundance area where ticket holders can learn from folks immersed in topics like gardening, traditional foods, eating for wellness, foraging, caring for our soils, and herbalism.
