ACCORD — June Fest, the first annual Rondout-Esopus Land Conservancy (RELC) event to celebrate local agriculture, will take place at Arrowood Farms at 236 Lower Whitfield Road in Accord on June 2 from 3-6 p.m. Guests will enjoy a wide selection of Arrowood organic craft beer and non-alcoholic beverages. Locally-sourced food will be served by Graze Farm-to-Table.

June Fest is open to the public. A $5 suggested donation will be collected at the door.

In addition to celebrating local agriculture, June Fest gives the Rondout Valley community an opportunity to meet RELC volunteers and conservation easement landowners. Guests will learn about the organization's ongoing conservation efforts and how they can get involved.

The Rondout-Esopus Land Conservancy is a non-profit organization that partners with local landowners to protect and preserve land in Ulster County for current and future generations. To date, RELC has protected over 4,000 acres of forest, historic farmland and waterways in the Rondout and Esopus valleys.
