How Hurricane Irene has affected my friend and mentor Pete Taliaferro of Taliaferro Farms

I have shared with all of you throughout my posts that the weather plays such a factor in the success of a vegetable garden.

As home gardeners, we can be frustrated and disappointed in our efforts.

Hurricane Irene has devastated the farms of New Paltz and the Walkhill Corridor

As you will see in the video below, it doesn’t begin to measure how it can affect the farmer.

Pete Taliaferro has been my teacher for over 8 years. The knowledge, enthusiasm and patience he has shared with me is the reason I became a passionate organic vegetable gardener. My wife Laura and I, along with a few devoted friends of Pete are organizing a fall function to benefit the farmers of this area. Please share this video with people you care about.  adam

    Adam,
    Very sorry to hear about your friend’s and others who suffered this devastation from the storm. I was unable to get the video to come up, but I’ll keep trying. You deserve much thanks for pitching in to help your friends and neighbors. I hope we can contribute in some way to the relief effort. George & Jane
