Help Pete’s Greens rebuild the barn!

Just in case you’ve missed it, Juniper Moon Farm is holding a fundraiser to help Pete’s Greens, a Vermont CSA farm, rebuild their barn after a devastating fire. To make it more interesting, we’re also having HUGE giveaway for everyone who enters. The farm is donating a couple of Yarn CSA shares and Farm Stays and we have received dozens and dozens of prize donations from some of the biggest names in knitting! WEBS, Clara Parkes, Rowan, Schaefer Yarn and many, many more.

The giveaway is just a small way of saying thank you for donating to help Pete’s! Thank you so much for considering a small donation to help one of the good guys.
All the details about the fundraiser and the giveaway can be found right here.

While I don’t know Pete personally, I do know his greens and I know that while his barn is out of commission there are many local farms and businesses that are suffering.  His CSA is unusual in that he includes products from other farmers in his shares, and he also supplies many fine restaurants that feature local food, and all those businesses are out of luck without Pete’s.  I not only donated some cash, but have donated some prizes to Susie’s fundraiser/giveaway because I really believe in what Pete’s is doing.   All those little bits of care do add up.  Susie’s goal is to raise $10,000 for Pete by Feb. 6th, so I hope that some of you might consider making a donation as well, however small.

Many thanks to Susan Gibbs of Juniper Moon Farm for rising to the occasion, and using her fibery powers to bring the power of the knitters to bear for this worthy cause!
