Ladybug Farms has again been invited as the Farm Partner in the Dave Matthews Band Farm to Family program. The band will perform at Lakewood Ampitheatre on May 30th. Extra exciting this year is the Northeast Georgia Food Bank will be the Food Bank Partner. The Farm to Family program was established by REVERB and each year raises over $100K nationwide for Local Farms and Community Food Banks. Volunteers collect canned food items and donations for refillable Brita water bottles at the concert, the money is directed to the Farm who then donate produce in kind throughout the growing season to the Food Bank partner.
