Young farmers care about sustainable agriculture, local food, equitable food access, and climate resilience. But currently there are not enough young farmers to scale up this stewardship. In the U.S., farmers over 65 outnumber farmers under 35 by six-to-one. The number of acres that will change hands in the next twenty years is over 573 million. In short, we need more young farmers.
That’s why this fall Kimbal and Christiana Musk are hosting a special benefit for the National Young Farmers Coalition (NYFC), the only national organization fighting solely for the needs of young and beginning farmers and ranchers. It is with pleasure that we invite you to attend this evening of local food and drinks, live music, mingling and more at Kimbal and Christiana’s new home in Boulder, CO.
Who: National Young Farmers Coaliton
What: A benefit featuring locally-sourced food by Plenty and music by energetic bluegrass band Timber! Special presentations by Lindsey Shute, National Young Farmers Coalition executive director and co-founder, Kimbal Musk, and members of the local Flatirons Young Farmers Coalition.
Where: The home of Kimbal and Christiana Musk
$500 Seed Saver
Why: Learn about the growing national young farmer movement and how your support can catalyze the next generation of food producers to meet the challenges ahead. Will you join us in our mission to help 25,000 young people enter viable farming careers by 2022?
Space is limited; please RSVP early. Event address and other details will be provided upon registration.
We look forward to seeing you on October 15th!
