To the Editor:
Thank you to the MV Times and the Vineyard Gazette, as well as all the participating Island vendors, for their support of The FARM Institute and Edible Vineyard’s latest book talk with author Michael Pollan.
As a clarification, this was a community event, not a fundraiser. Event capacity was increased from 200 to more than 375 to accommodate demand, and tickets were accessibly priced at $15, barely covering event costs. As a public, non-profit farm, The FARM Institute is deeply committed to our Island and looks forward to more collaborations and community events in the future.
