Beacon Citizen Network (BCN): a place for neighbors to get the word out, be heard and stay informed in all matters concerning Beacon, NY.



This Saturday, Dec. 6 -- support farm-to-school, education, and food donation programs at the Common Ground Farm Annual Benefit Auction!

Did you know that in 2014 every third, fourth, and fifth grade class from J.V. Forrestal Elementary School visited Common Ground Farm to learn about worms, bees, compost, organic farming, and local vegetables? And, in 2014 Common Ground Farm donated over 2,000 pounds of our organically grown produce to food pantries and soup kitchens?

Help us continue to provide such important programs by attending our Annual Benefit Auction and bidding on amazing auction items! Join us this Saturday, December 6th, 7:00PM at the Scenic Hudson River Center Red Barn, 8 Long Dock Road for food, drink, and live music from Tall County.
