Meeting to save Ludgate Farms

Maybe it doesn't have to go away. The latest from Shira Golding:


Since emailing everyone about my concern that Ludgate Farms is planning on closing, tons of people have expressed interest in keeping the business alive and all kinds of ideas have been suggested including turning the existing business into a worker-owned coop, getting a bunch of local nonprofits to invest as a group, or perhaps radically revisioning Ludgate's as a community meeting space offering equipment for food preservation, garden plots, classes and more.

We will be having a meeting to discuss all of these ideas and more with the current owners, the Quinn-Jacobs, and anyone interested in the future of Ludgate Farms as an ongoing contributor to our local food security.

Please come if you are interested in getting involved in any way, even if you don't have a lot of time but just want to be part of the discussion.

Friday, December 9, 7:30-9:00pm
Ludgate Farms, 1552 Hanshaw Road, Ithaca, NY

Feel free to bring a drink or snack to share!
