Remembering Chris Blanchard
Chris produced an amazing collection of practical information for farmers through his Farmer-to-Farmer podcast and the writings and resources that he shared on his Purple Pitchfork website. Friends and fans of Chris have come forward asking to help keep this rich resource available so it can continue to benefit farmers and farming advocates. This is something Chris wanted to see too and thought about even in his last days.
An old friend and fan of Chris’s work, David Washburn, suggested that a fund be started for this purpose and has committed to matching donations up to $2,500. After receiving the go-ahead from Angie and Chris, we are moving forward to ensure this resource will be available for many years to come.
If you would like to support this legacy project, you may make a tax-deductible donation to the Farmer to Farmer Podcast Archive Fund. Your donation will support Renewing the Countryside to keep the Farmer to Farmer podcasts available online for anyone to download and keep the resources and information current to continue Chris’ dedication for farmer-led, collaborative education.
