    I just received this email from Pat McGovern at the Upper valley Food Co-op.

    Please forward to your email list. LOCAL FARMERS NEED YOUR HELP!

    Dear Local Food Advocates,

    As you well know, flooding from Hurricane Irene has devastated crops on many farms, including Hurricane Flats in S. Royalton which lost 65 acres of produce. Here is a message from the Hurricane Flats family:
    “Many of you have inquired about how you can help Hurricane Flats, and we’re finally able to give you an answer. This Thursday, September 8th, we’re having our first clean-up day and potluck lunch to begin the process of rebuilding the farm. We need about 100 volunteers to clear debris, dig out mulch, remove the broken irrigation system and, eventually, start planting a new cover crop. Volunteers can begin arriving at the farm at 9am and should wear work boots and clothes that can get dirty and bring gloves, bottled water, shovels, buckets and rakes if possible. Please also bring a lunch dish to share with your fellow volunteers.

    If you wish to get involved, please email helphurricaneflats@gmail.com and include your name and how many people you’re bringing.

    From all of us at Hurricane Flats, thank you for all of your kind words and support over the last week. I can’t tell you how much it means to us.

    With love,
    Geo, Sharon, Emma, Cora, Rory, Claire, Mark and the rest of the Hurricane Flats family
