Get your tickets and help raise funds to support Chrysalis, the Community Farm of Ann Arbor’s non-profit educational arm. Chrysalis’s goal is to share agricultural understandings through study, demonstrations, lectures, and hands-on activities of biodynamic farming methods.
Tickets are priced in a variety of ways so many people can get involved. The fee is $35 for the musical performances only and access to the cash bar, and a sliding scale between $75 and $250 for the evening’s full array of events. Peas Turnip the Beat features live performances by Seth & May along with Shari Kane & Dave Steele and Izzy, locally sourced appetizers and cocktails, a silent auction, bonfires, and yard games. Tickets available online through Zingerman’s Events, and in person at the Community Farm during distribution on Wednesday 12-7pm.
Did you know the Community Farm of Ann Arbor is one of the first CSAs in the country, running for 26 years! Farmers Paul Bantle and Annie Elder remain solidly committed to the farm’s original goals: to develop a sustainable method of agriculture that yields nourishing food while maintaining and enhancing the health of the soil; to provide a livelihood for the producers, and to create a partnership with the producers and the consumers in which the risks and rewards of farming are shared.
We feel so grateful to have Community Farm and Chrysalis in our community.
