Bring Water to the Woven Farm!

The growing season is here, and the professional drillers Sam has conferred with have told her that she may have to put in a residential well, which means she has to go very deep, maybe 200 ft deep, and that brings us to our urgent request:  The Woven Farm needs funds, immediately, in order to get water.
You can read about Sam’s saga on her Instagram page here https://www.instagram.com/the.woven.trifecta/

All farmers know that they will contend with the vagaries of the weather, and accept that without question as part of the cost of farming. But this is different; this is a show stopping emergency. The growing season is here, and The Woven Farmstead needs our help, and the sooner, the better.

The GoFundME page we have created for Sam is here:

Please consider making a donation. If you prefer to send it directly to Sam, here is her address:
Samantha Otto, 7722 Whitehall Rd, Whitehall, MI 49461

1. Look over the list. Each vendor has a unique deadline for when they need to receive your pre-order depending on their product. Send your pre-order by email to each vendor you want to order from, within their required deadlines.
2. Vendors will respond back by no later than Friday before market day with an order confirmation and an invoice that in most cases will allow you to pre-pay for your order. If a vendor is not set up to take payment online they will accept checks (preferred) or cash in a sealed envelope on market day pickup.

If you have not already done so you may want to sign up for the newsletter
to be informed of the pre-order schedule for the next market.
If you have questions about info in this newsletter
please email them to sweetwaterlocalfoods@gmail.com
We are not able to respond through Tiny Letter
