Farmster Festival raises money for community farm at SOMO Village

Farmster Team

The Farmster Festival celebrated and raised operating dollars for a nonprofit endeavor to create a community farm, engage children in the growing of low-cost, healthful produce and promote the expansion of small scale, farm-to-plate agriculture.

Farmster was founded by recent SSU graduates Dustin DeMatteo, Tomio Endo, Allison Jenks and Jamal Edwards, who seek to improve food security and the nutrition of those who’ll receive food from the farm that’s being created on SOMO Village land long used for dry-farmed rye grass.
