Remember a couple of weeks ago I had issued a blog post about Franny’s Farm? Let me just tell you, right now, Franny is by far and away one inspirational woman! Not only was she a speaker at the March Against Monsanto rally last weekend, she, her husband Jeff and her son Zack have worked so hard and so diligently getting Franny’s Farm off the ground it is absolutely awe inspiring to see not only how far they’ve come but the plans they have in place for the future.
I was lucky enough to help her document some really fun and great moments out on the farm in Leicester and this coming Saturday she is hosting a benefit for Asheville High School’s 4H program. They’re showing an independent film about AHS’s band trip to Washington DC for the Presidential inauguration, have musical entertainment lined up all day long from: Little Creek, Outside Suburbia, Sherry Lynn and her Bluegrass Band, The River Rats and Pierce Edens and the Dirty Work. There will also be food from Farm 2 Fender Food Trucks and craft sales from local artisans not to mention farm animals too!
This event really is going to be a blast and for a great cause!! Tickets are $5 (Pre-schoolers are free) and proceeds are going to establish Future Farmers of America at Asheville High School!!!
In the meantime, here are some more fun images from Franny’s Farm. And, if you come out on Saturday, I may even take pictures of YOU!
See you there!
