They served us an eviction notice, they are trying to kick us out so they can sell the property for condos. Here's a link to the farm's page and a petition we made. I'm Jennifer Rose on facebook.

We need help!

VOLUNTEER:

Farming, carpentry, website development, creating a kickstarter video, grant writing, promoting events, fundraising, outreach, grant writing, legal aid, automobile and tractor repair, landscaping, plumbing, electrical, and roofing.

DONATE:

We can accept cash, checks, and credit cards. You can donate directly through facebook with no fees. The farm also has a wish list of items to donate.

We are still up and running till they shut us down... and probably a little longer. We need people more than ever, we have a sweet little sheep spanging gig where we go out with a little lamb, and we are booking tons of house shows. We have a sketchy as fuuuck treehouse stage that we are trying to expand. We're trying not to keep people more than six days so we can get fresh blood cycling through, be prepared to be worked to death. Don't bother showing up if you can't be sober and behave. We are under totally under fire right now and we don't need any more legal hassles. But PLEASE tell everyone you can, we need help. Share the page, share the petition, donate, if we can get a decent down payment we can make an offer on the place. If you know anyone who can help in anyway, please let them know.

This is my little crusty

If I had the funds I would give it to you. I am sorry to hear about this. I did share on facebook and google+ so hopefully this helps. Wish I could do more.

Sucks ass... Maybe use all raised funds to start looking for a new spot... Once property owners start talking condos its gonna be pretty much impossible to dissuade them. Sad fact is its the amount of cash being offered is so much they don't give a shit about anything else.

Hi, Jennifer!

I'd like to sign your petition, but I kept getting sent to a page for animal rights.

I belong to a ton of AR groups, but what I'm looking for are more community organizations to network with.

This country doesn't need more government controlled housing, it needs more loving, free communities.

I love what you're doing!

Good luck!

Only one of the two co-owners wants to sell, the other gave us an option to buy. If we can get a down payment enough people on board we can actually force a sale to us. The spot is amazing, close to downtown Portland, ME and 32 acres. There isn't going to be a better spot in the area.

We have a ton of shows booked, so bands coming though can book a show with us. We also have a Go Fund Me. I think we're at a whopping 20bux.

    More Info

Support StP!

Donations go towards paying our monthly server fees, adding new features to the website, and occasionally putting a burrito in Matt's mouth.

Total amount
$10.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $10.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $10.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $10.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $10.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
