Please read the following dispatch from Judith Winfrey, SFA member and Georgia farmer:
"As many of you know, we at Love is Love Farm have been hit by record floods which turned the Aneewakee Creek bordering the western side of the farm, into a raging river that tore through 2/3 of the fields, downing huge trees, ruining most of our fall and winter crops, destroying equipment and washing away our topsoil. So many have expressed a desire to help, and we are humbled and grateful to see this vibrant good food community in action. In many ways we feel like we've experienced 2 floods, one of destruction, and one of support. It is moving and beautiful to be in the midst of the latter."
To help Judith and other farmers, Slow Food Atlanta has set up a fund to help Georgia's flooded sustainable farmers. All contributions to this fund will be tax deductible. For more information, click here.
If you are a farmer who has been impacted, or you know one who has, please contact Jonathan Tescher at Georgia Organics (firstname.lastname@example.org). GO is conducting a survey of farmers and compiling data to share with the Department of Ag.
