Our farm and farmers need your help to replant your organic food source ! Hurricane Willa's torrential rains this past week flooded the two rivers bordering the South Star Farm south of Puerto Vallarta. We also lost a portion of the green house in San Sebastian del Oste due to high winds. Last month's fall planting would have been ready to harvest in just 3-4 weeks, the flood buried our fields in deep mud, washed away plants and seeds. We will start replanting as soon as the earth can be tilled again, which is done by horse-drawn plow.
As a result, your harvest will be delayed 6-8 weeks. Not only will this impact the food baskets of our Organic Select Friends & Members, but it will also impact our rural South Star Farm team — 11 village families — to suffer a loss of income.
We would appreciate and be most grateful for monetary support to replant the farm's lower sectors, plus repair the damaged farmhouse, equipment and fencing. We also need to replenish our lost heirloom seed stock — a devastating loss for Organic Select farms.
We are humbled by your generous reponses, shares and concern, we will keep you updated as to the results of your donations. We thank you and, again, appreciate your continued support of the local organic farmers co-op of Jalisco
