Dave Matthews and a host of Northwest musicians will hold a virtual concert later this month to help local farmers. The September 30th benefit concert, Love the Land, will be hosted by the Washington Farmland Trust. According to organizers, funds raised will help growers battling more than just a global pandemic.
“Local farmers,” Washington Farmland Trust said, “are under enormous pressure due to rising land prices, climate change and the pandemic….and it will take all of us to create lasting solutions.”
The concert has been promoted as 90 minutes of continuous entertainment. Tickets for the YouTube live event runs $10. Organizers hope to raise $350,000 for local farmers.
