Farm Aid 2012

An important part of "going green" is being conscious of the food you eat. It's better to eat natural foods than ones made in a factory with artificial chemicals and such. Farmers are the ones who provide us with natural, healthy foods and they should be supported. Farm Aid is a non-profit organization that aims to help farmers when they are in need. They also teach farmers to use sustainable farming practices, help farmers sell their food to local markets, and protest factory farms. Each year, they hold a concert to help raise money. The first Farm Aid concert was organized by Willie Nelson, John Mellencamp, and Neil Young in 1985. This year, the concert is set for September 22 at Hersheypark Stadium. Besides the musicians I mentioned before, the concert will also include Jack Johnson, Dave Matthews, ALO, and some others... but those are the three I'd be most excited about! Tickets start at $35.75 (plus fees). Definitely worth going to see this great lineup and supporting a good cause. To find out more about the concert, visit
