{weekend reading} local edition



– We are hosting two fundraisers; For the Farms: Denison Farm & Kilpatrick Family Farm and one for Amanda, a FSC Contributor. Any amount of money donated will qualify you to win one of the many gift baskets we have to offer. I have been bombarded with generosity; so I am happy to announce that additional gift baskets were added; including two new {local} giveaways, a generous gift basket of 30 pounds of vegetables from Capital District Community Garden’s The Produce Project and anyone who donates over $50 will be in the running for a dinner for FOUR at Beekman Street Bistro (whoa.)  We have raised close to $2,200 combined for both fundraisers. The fundraisers run through October 15th.

Honest Weight Food Co-op in Albany is taking and matching (up to $10k) in donations for farms impacted by Irene.

The opening Reception is this Saturday, October 8th from 3-6 pm and the gallery will be open on October 9 and 10 from 12-4pm. More details here. It looks like they have some pretty amazing artists featured for this anniversary show, and the drive to Coila (just outside Cambridge) will likely be a spectacular show of fall colors given the cool nights we’ve had this week!
