Help Rise & Root recover from Hurricane Ida Losses

Donation protected

Rise & Root Farm is raising money to cover the losses incurred by Hurricane Ida and flooding in our fields. We lost our tomato crop more than a month earlier than usual and our fall crops are either total losses or so stressed that they may or may not survive. We also lost several weeks of work as we waited for the water to receed, assessed the damage, and let the fields dry out enough to replant. We are ending our farmers' market season about two months early because we don't have enough produce to sell anymore.
 
Rise & Root Farm is a cooperatively owned business run by four women who are multigenerational, multi-racial, and LGBTQ+. We are committed to food justice and to being a healing farm and safe place for people from our communities. Rise & Root Farm is a small diversified vegetable farm located in Chester, NY on the famous black dirt. In addition to vegetables, we grow a mix of herbs and cut flowers. Our growing practices are organic or beyond.

The money we raise will help to cover our lost income for the remaining weeks of our growing season. It will go to pay our staff and to help us prepare for winter and spring crops.

We appreciate any help you can give, either by donating or by sharing this fundraiser with others. Thank you!
