William’s Atlantic Sunrise pipeline, slated for construction through Columbia County, has prevented the farmers of Hearts & Bones Farm from farming the land this season. While unable to use the fields for CSA and their market garden, organic farmers Chris McCallum and Jill Lashmett refuse to abandon their land to the natural gas industry.
This summer, with the help of the Columbia County Against the Pipeline Campaign, the Shalefield Organizing Committee, and the community, Hearts & Bones farm will be “Planted Against the Pipeline,” featuring flowers of resistance, a pumpkin patch, and more!
We also plan to host a series of teach-ins on various topics, including the impacts of the natural gas industry, local watersheds, native history of our region, and many more! Through this project we will cultivate connection within our community, our land, our history, and our environment all while resisting this destructive pipeline!
Saturday, JULY 22: How Natural Gas Impacts PA
On Saturday, July 22, we will be meeting at the farm to weed around the mulched pumpkins from 9:30 – 11:30 AM.
Then, from noon – 2 PM, we will host a discussion about how the natural gas industry impacts the residents, economy, and environment in Pennsylvania.
Tools and water will be provided! Please bring snacks if you want. If you are unable to work with us in the morning, please feel free to join us for our discussion at noon!
