Hoop House Raising @ Dee Creek Farm

The folks out at Dee Creek Farm are having an old-fashioned barn hoop house raising this Sunday. If you're able-bodied and have a few hours to spare, they could really use your help. This is an excellent opportunity to show Dee Creek some love for any of you folks who were/are unable to make a financial contribution to their farm relief effort! See the note below from Anne Lawrence of Storytree Farm for the details:
