Bold Alliance and Four Corners Farm have partnered to host a Farm Tour and fundraising event on May 14th in Rocky Mount for Virginia gubernatorial candidate Tom Perriello — who stands in opposition to the proposed Atlantic Coast and Mountain Valley fracked gas pipeline projects.

Four Corners Farm is in the direct path of the proposed Mountain Valley Pipeline and for the family that lives on and manages the land, the threat of this project is an everyday thought. Farm owners, Betty and Dave Werner and Ian and Carolyn Reilly, recognize the importance of the 2017 election as it relates to the two 42” fracked gas pipelines proposed to devastate Virginia.

Perriello’s opposition to the Mountain Valley and Atlantic Coast pipeline projects lauded praise from pipeline opponents, including Four Corners Farm and Carolyn Reilly, who wishes to connect Perriello with pipeline fighters in the region and offered to host a fundraiser on their family farm.

“Pickin’ for Perriello” is also sponsored by Bold Alliance, which has expanded their reach to the region through their “Bold Appalachia” initiative to support landowners, water protectors and unlikely alliances fighting fracked gas pipelines.

In addition to Virginia gubernatorial candidate Tom Perriello, the event will feature local folk musicians Waiting to Exhale; a “No Pipeline” farm tour; local food and regional beers.

A centerpiece of the event will be a whole roasted pig, raised on Four Corners Farm, celebrating the southern tradition of a political pig pickin’.

Thanks for standing with us,

Carolyn & Ian Reilly and family
