Salvation Farms Aid; a Benefit Concert - Come On Out!

Salvation Farms’ Aid is back! On Sunday, June 13th at Camp Meade in Middlesex, Salvation Farms will hold its second annual benefit concert. Gates open at 11:30, music starts at 12:30, a $30 show, free for those under 12.

Salvation Farms is a Vermont non-profit collaborating with farmers, partners, and community members to help Vermont feed itself. Join in celebrating and supporting this critical work.

Inspired by Farm Aid, Salvation Farms’ Aid features some of your favorite 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. That is an incredible line-up!

While the performers and music is enticing enough, 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.

Salvation Farms’ Aid is made possible with support from Cabot Creamery, National Life, Yankee Farm Credit, Gardener’s Supply, Ben & Jerry’s, Concept2, WIZN, The X Press, Rock Art Brewery, Sterling College, City Market, The Alchemist, Music & Arts, WBTV-LP, and Camp Meade.
