Salvation Farms’ Aid – Musical Benefit Concert
June 13 @ 11:30 am - 5:30 pm$30
A musical benefit show in support of local food, farmers, and agriculture
Camp Meade to host Salvation Farms’ Aid, featuring live local musicians covering national acts. Gates open at 11:30 a.m., music starts at 12:30 p.m., a $30 show, free for those under 12.
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 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.
Salvation Farms, a non-profit organization, is holding the event to support its work collaborating with farmers, partners, and community members to help Vermont feed itself and build increased resilience in Vermont’s food systems.
Supporting artists and supporting local farmers and local food for Vermont dovetails nicely with the philosophy of Planetary Matters, the company that owns Camp Meade. “We want to support artists and we want to support farmers. One of our joys it to feed the body and feed the soul, that’s our core mission. We’re delighted to host something that supports music and farmers without whom we wouldn’t be able to eat,” explained Russ Bennett, one of the partners (with Mike Pelcher and Alan Newman) in Planetary Matters.
In addition to the live music, on the day of the show there will also be a silent auction, featuring (among other things) 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, and an annual family membership to the Craftsbury Outdoor Center. Ticket sales and silent auction proceeds benefit Salvation Farms. Salvation Farms’ Aid will also feature a Local Abundance area where ticket holders can learn from folks immersed in topics such as gardening, traditional foods, eating for wellness, foraging, caring for our soils, and herbalism.
