We are reaching out to our community on behalf of our friend and fellow farmer Charlie. Charlie is experiencing a painful spinal injury. And as he awaits surgery, he has been unable to continue working with us at Bug. Farming is both physically demanding and low paid labor. We are asking for support in covering medical expenses and wages lost due to this injury.
Charlie is a gentle soul who moves with intention. He’s passionate about growing food sustainably and being a part of the team. We care deeply about his well-being and his ability to have a future doing what he loves.
If you care about supporting your local food system, here’s a chance to do so — by supporting those that grow food here in the valley. We greatly appreciate your contribution.
Love, the Bug Farms Team
The dollar amount requested is intended to cover Charlie’s insurance deductible and 5 to 6 weeks of missed wages.
