Direct support both from our working collective members and the community at large are indispensable to meeting our operating and programming costs. We welcome monthly ($5/month) and annual ($60/year) support from community members and friends who would like to help contribute to our overhead. Our goal is to reach 100 supporters by the end of January, which will help us cover around half of our monthly rent and bills going forward. All contributions are tax-deductible. Thank you for your support! *Note: We will acknowledge your support on our Supporters page unless you let us know that you’d like to remain anonymous, either during checkout or by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

In December, Bushel turned two! We are excited to continue offering our eclectic range of programming as we enter our third year (read our mission statement here). In our first two years we have hosted dozens of events relating to visual art, literature, storytelling, film and documentary, music and dance; offered low- or no-cost workshops in self-defense, bystander intervention, legal rights for immigrants, direct action, ‘zine and bookmaking, yoga, wellness and self-care; provided a regular meeting place for community activists with the Delaware County Solidarity Group and for farmers via our own New Grange Farm Club; collaborated with local initiatives such as Transition Catskills and the Get Woke! series for films and discussions about race; and hosted clothing swaps and an occasional free store to help facilitate community exchange outside of economic pressures. Our low-volume small- and tiny-press bookstore and art program offer opportunities for engagement with handmade and small-edition works, while supporting creators with favorable consignment terms. We have sought and received funding from Poets & Writers for honoraria that are paid directly to our visiting writers, and with our newly acquired 501(c)3 status, we will be able to begin more concerted fundraising efforts to support programming. It’s important to our mission to provide affordable access to our programming, so most of it is offered on a donation basis with a recommended donation of $5-10 for most events.
Donations in any amount help immensely! THANK YOU. See who else has supported Bushel here.
