UNITY — Maine Farmland Trust and the Free Range Music Series will present ScuffleHoeDown, a Veggies for All harvest celebration at 7 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 5, at the Unity Food Hub, 69 School St.

The event will feature a concert by Hymn For Her.

The Americana duo, Hymn for Her, is Lucy and Wayne Waxing. Their newest release “Drive ‘Til U Die” is more than an album title, it’s a manifesto. A mantra. A nomadic tribe of three (they tour with their daughter), they dwell in a ’61-vintage Bambi Airstream towed by a Ford van whose odometer shows nearly half a million miles. Lucy, who plays an iconic Johnny Lowe-made Lowebow cigar-box guitar/bass, and Wayne have been described as “hillbillies with electronics.”

Veggies For All, a project of Maine Farmland Trust, is a food bank farm that works to relieve hunger by growing vegetables for those in need, while collaborating with partners to distribute and increase access to quality and nutritious food. Each year Veggies For All grows tons of vibrant, pesticide-free produce that is made available to roughly 1500 of our most food insecure neighbors -at no cost- through a network of 9 food pantries serving 25 towns. Founded by beginning farmers in 2007, Veggies For All has grown and distributed 130,000 pounds of vegetables and engaged hundreds of volunteers in thousands of hours of community-based hunger relief.

The Unity Food Hub aggregates, markets and distributes Maine foods from family farms and small food businesses.

Tickets cost $10 in advance or $12 at the door and are online at www.mainefarmlandtrust.org or call 338-6575.
