Hurricane Michael Recovery Fund

Our dear friend and colleague, Bennet Silver, suffered devastating damage to his home in Florida after Hurricane Michael crossed over.  
Bennet has been a fellow IASTE Local 44 member for decades and he and his wife, Nicole, run Silver Oaks Farm in Marianna, Florida. His crew back in LA wishes to extend as much support as possible during this time, because Bennet would immediately do the same for any of us. 

On 33 acres, the damage has been extensive. They have lost many of the animal housings, their beautiful massive Oak trees have been uprooted, parts of their house need to be rebuilt, buildings that housed much of their farm equipment are gone, and now they need to start picking up the pieces of their lives. 

We are raising money to help with the cost of rebuilding their farm, as well as covering the costs of Bennet taking time away from his television job in LA, and the ongoing lack of income coming in from not having a running farm.
