Farmer Group Sets Up Relief Fund

João Felipe C.S./Public Domain

Farmers live among us and grow our food.  And a number of programs urge us to get to know local farmers better. 

Here's another place where Covid-19 concerns have made a dent: some people are reluctant to visit the farmer's market if it means being around clumps of other people. 

The American Farmland Trust just created a Farmer Relief Fund to assist farmers who have lost customers and money in the coronavirus crisis.  Addie Candib, Pacific Northwest Regional Director for AFT, is our guest.
