William’s Atlantic Sunrise pipeline, slated for construction through Columbia County, has prevented the farmers of Hearts & Bones Farm from farming the land this season. While unable to use the fields for CSA and their market garden, organic farmers Chris McCallum and Jill Lashmett refuse to abandon their land to the natural gas industry.
This summer, with the help of the Columbia County Against the Pipeline Campaign, the Shalefield Organizing Committee, and the community, Hearts & Bones farm will be “Planted Against the Pipeline,” featuring flowers of resistance, a pumpkin patch, and more!
SATURDAY, August 5th: Pumpkin Patch Work Day
From 9:30 AM – 12:30 PM we will be weeding the pumpkin patch again, Once again we will gather at the farm to weed, place additional straw, tend to the pumpkins, and likely to a bit of squash bug pest control…
We will have tools and water, but please bring snacks if you want!
The pumpkins are growing fast, the sunflowers are about to bloom, and the buckwheat is sprouting…Hope to see you there!
