Better Farm's Annual Open House & Fundraiser
Better Farm, 1970
Better Farm, an artists' retreat and sustainability education center in Redwood, N.Y., has slated its annual open house and fundraiser for 3 p.m. Saturday, May 28.

The event invites the local community to stop in and tour the facility's grounds, buildings, gardens, and new Art Barn, listen to music by local bands, see artwork on display by various artists-in-residence and local talent, and enjoy a potluck barbecue. Guests will also be invited to take part in a community art installation that will be put on display in downtown Redwood.

This event additionally marks the official opening of Better Farm's newest extension, betterArts, a 501c3 not-for-profit organization designed to increase opportunities and access to the arts for area residents. Free music and art lessons, dissemination of instruments, concerts, art exhibits, and studio space are being offered at low or no cost to those who demonstrate genuine curiosity and need.

Camping is available for overnight guests at a rate of $8/per person.
