Purple Sage Greenhouse Relief
Purple Sage Farms in Middleton had 5 of their 12 greenhouses collapse with heavy snow. They have a pile of bent aluminum frames and torn plastic - a total loss. Three others are standing with some damage and the other seven will need new plastic covering.. There was no insurance to cover these greenhouses or the loss of crops caused by this rare weather event. Just the plastic alone to cover the greenhouses will cost several thousand dollars. Tim Sommer and his family have been growing organic herbs, greens and vegetables for almost 30 years, selling to Boise Co-Op, and area restaraunts. Purple Sage Farms and the Sommer family are anchor vendors and loyal supporters of Boise Farmers Market. Please help us help them recover from their loss.
