The farm is hosting a fundraiser at 4 p.m. Sunday. The event will include farm tours, traditional Karen folk music and dancing, Karen appetizers and hot cider, plus a presentation about Karen culture and Burma.
Tickets cost $15 online at http://ocpyc.wordpress.com/ or $20 at the door.
The farm, located at 2912-B Jones Ferry Road, Chapel Hill, serves 25 families relocated to North Carolina from Burma. The funds raised will allow more families to use the community farm and replace grant money that is expiring.
UPDATE: Just got this email:
