Dig Local Update 5/28/20 - AVL Hemp Farms Video, Phase 2, Virtal Events, and more

Asheville Hemp Farms
Relax with the latest #digAVL Video 

A series on how local businesses are adjusting to the COVID-19 crisis

Meet Jane Allred, the store manager of Asheville Hemp Farms! Though the pandemic hit shortly after the local business moved to a new location in downtown Asheville, Asheville Hemp Farms persevered. They were able to pivot quickly to provide quality local immune system boosters and CBD products to the community to assist folks in keeping a peaceful mindset and chill vibe amidst the chaos.

See the video interview here!
While we've all had to adjust to the "new normal" (whatever that is), our local business owners and managers each have their own story to tell about how they've been affected and what they are doing during these unprecedented times. Dig Local is proud to partner with our friend, Ann Smith, at Leap Frog Tours to interview some of the awesome folks who make Asheville, Asheville.

They will be serving no-contact takeout from 12 -10 pm this Saturday, as well as live streaming performances throughout the day featuring Kathryn O'Shea, Stevie Lee Combs Music and Amalia Grannis of Moonlight Street Folk.

10% of the profits will be donated to Food Connection to help ease hunger, reduce food waste, and to continue to help feed our community during this time.

We look forward to celebrating with y'all!
