Fair Farming Meetup @ Rock Steady Farm (Hudson Valley)

October 4 @ 5:00 pm 8:00 pm

Fair Farming Meetup @ Rock Steady Farm (Hudson Valley), 10/4

Join Rock Steady Farm and the Agricultural Justice Project for a fair farming meetup! This gathering will be pot-luck style to share more than just a meal. Together we plan to exchange stories on cultivating our social justice values in our farms and build connections to keep supporting each other in this work.

WHO: Farmers and workers who want to make our farms more fair for everyone involved. All are welcome.

WHEN: Tuesday, October 4, 5pm – 8pm

WHERE: Rock Steady Farm, 41 Kaye Road, Millerton NY 12546

RSVP is helpful but not necessary. Email Jon Magee (jon@agriculturaljusticeproject.org) if you think you’ll be there, but please come if you can, even if you didn’t RSVP.

Community Agreements:

Please review Rock Steady’s Community Agreements before joining us at the farm.

Pot-Luck Guidelines:

We invite you to bring a dish that you and your farm team enjoy to nourish you throughout the season. A good potluck guideline is to bring 3x the amount of food you would eat on your own. Please clearly label the ingredients for your dish and designated serving utensils so people can make their choices and we avoid cross contamination. Cold served foods are preferred because we do not have the capacity to heat food.

Parking:

Park along the white fence on Kaye Rd then walk up to the farm where you will see a Rock Steady Farm sign.

COVID-19 Safety:

This event will be held outdoors and we ask everyone to bring a mask. We encourage you to wear a mask when in close proximity to each other and while serving food. We will provide multiple wash stations for hand washing and hand sanitizer throughout the farm. Please refrain from joining us if you are feeling sick or have been potentially exposed to anyone with COVID-19 within the same week of the event.

Accessibility:

While we wish to offer more accessible farming experiences for volunteers and visitors with physical disabilities that limit mobility, our current farm infrastructure (including roads, barns, hoop houses and bathrooms) are not set up to provide accessible and obstacle free paths.

Our pot-luck will be held in a grassy, shaded area with backless benches available for sitting (you are welcome to sit on the grass or bring blankets for sitting on the ground). We have a limited number of foldable chairs with back support, please help us ensure that people who need back support are prioritized in accessing these chairs.

Let us know if you have any concerns about visiting the farm and your safety, for more information about accessibility contact programs@rocksteadyfarm.com
