Hurricane Maria Sept 19, 2017
Farm Update as of September 21, Thursday.
So good to hear from our farm crew yesterday, Wedensday Sept 20th.
Latest update was that they were all ok and that our sheep (still waiting for word on our pigs) and structures survived a direct hit of category 5 hurricane, the highest on the wind scale.
This is only 15 days after a category 5 Irma hit our sister islands St Thomas and St John, and BVI. Most of my family lives on St Thomas. We were in the middle of sending supplies and food to them when the worst case scenario happened, a cat 5 directly hit us.
With 68 more days left in hurricane season, the farm crew has to move fast to save any crops and trees that can be resurrected in time. We are so blessed to have farm family and friends who are fundraising for the farm’s speedy recovery. Please see these two links.
If you are able to give, please do consider giving or sending supplies today to either of these links. Especially today. These next few days are critical to get supplies to farm to save certain tree crops in time. If you can send $ to both of these farm friends, they are buying and collecting supplies and sending them.
