Give directly to impacted farms
Farms throughout the region suffered serious losses, and some of the impacted farms have set up fundraisers. You can help them weather this disaster by donating directly to them.

Help other farms impacted by climate change & extreme weather

Erratic rainfall and erratic temperatures will both increase as our climate in New England shifts. Local fruit farms affected by the last weather disaster — the late May freeze — are also asking for help to continue farming and build resilience.
