soul food farm laying hens :: june, 2009

my dear friend alexis's soul food farm has suffered a horrible disaster: two nights ago, a fire burned down chicken houses and 1,000 baby chicks, a bard from the 1880s, and nearly thirty acres of pasture for the meat birds. without immediate and serious financial help, they may not be able to continue farming.

bonnie wrote an incredibly detailed post on ethicurean with lots of info and a paypal donation button. we're also working hard to set up a big fundraising party to get them lots of cash asap to ensure they're able to continue their good work.

please check in again in a week or so, when i'll have more details and a set date and location (hopefully) for the party so we can all spread the work and help keep soul food farm going.
