Montpelier, Vermont - January 28, 2011

A local college hopes to help Pete's Greens recover.

Fire hit the Craftsbury business on Jan. 12, destroying the main barn including all of the company's storage crops and vegetable processing equipment. The uninsured losses are estimated at $450,000.

Pete's Greens was one of Vermont's biggest suppliers of fresh, local produce year-round. So the Vermont College of Fine Arts in Montpelier is holding a contra dance and silent auction to benefit an emergency fund for organic farmers who have been hit by disasters. The event is Feb. 12 at the school's gymnasium.
