Last week, three of the farm’s buses were vandalized with swastikas and other graffiti. The buses symbolize the farm’s community – each bus was painted by CSA members, children, and volunteers. The Aurora Public Library recently donated one bus for the chickens which had been painted by children of their community.
On Sept. 24, Grant Family Farms invites the public to participate in a bus re-painting party from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.
Grant Family Farms wants the public to be a part of transforming these buses into even brighter symbols of the farm’s values of community, peace, and diversity.
Date: Saturday, Sept. 24
Time: 9 a.m. – 12 p.mm
Where: Field near Cuca’s Kitchen, just to the east of the farm offices at 1020 WCR, Wellington.
What to bring: any extra house paint hiding in your garage, water for drinking and wear painting clothes.
No need to RSVP – just show up between 9 a.m. and noon.
