Farm Aid News – Annie Nelson and Margo Price join Board of Directors

Friday, April 16th, 2021

Farm Aid has announced that Grammy-nominated artist Margo Price and lifelong humanitarian and advocate for family farmers Annie Nelson have joined its Board of Directors.

Via unanimous vote, Price and Nelson will work alongside founders Willie Nelson, Neil Young and John Mellencamp, artist board member Dave Matthews, and six industry professionals and family farm supporters.

Price and Nelson join a committed board that has steered Farm Aid for 35 years, hosting a unique annual festival to galvanize support for family farmers, organizing against corporate consolidation, deploying funds and resources to strengthen farm families facing ongoing challenges, and nurturing a cultural movement that values the people who bring good food to our tables. Farm Aid stays true to its founding values and traditions; for example, Farm Aid President Willie Nelson signs every grant check distributed by the organization to its nonprofit partners, and the organization keeps its ear to the ground, listening to a group of farmers from diverse backgrounds who care for the soil and water.

Price grew up in Illinois on her family farm before she witnessed its loss in the Farm Crisis that inspired the first Farm Aid concert. Price has been a staunch advocate for Farm Aid’s mission long before her first performance at Farm Aid 2016 in Bristow, Virginia. She has not missed a Farm Aid festival since, and this past year, she joined Dave Matthews to announce Farm Aid 2020 on Good Morning America. Price is the second artist to be added to Farm Aid’s Board of Directors after its original founding, following Dave Matthews’ appointment in 2001.

“It is always a thrill to perform alongside my heroes on the Farm Aid stage, and it is one of the greatest honors of my life to become a member of the Farm Aid board,” said Price. “It’s been a dream of mine to help family farmers and communities across America ever since my family lost their farm in the fall of 1984 — a year before the first Farm Aid concert. I hope to use my voice to shine light on the issues of climate change, our health and the health of our soil and water, and most importantly, food justice.”

Annie Nelson — who met husband Willie Nelson shortly after the first Farm Aid concert in 1985 — has served an integral role in the annual Farm Aid music and food festival. She has worked for decades to stand up for family farm agriculture and create opportunities for local, independent farmers, and she is an activist on many issues that positively impact America’s family farmers.

“I am honored to join Willie and the other members on Farm Aid’s Board of Directors,” said Nelson. “I’ve witnessed the incredible strength and resilience of America’s family farmers through my involvement in Farm Aid, and I am eager to continue to help our family farm system thrive through this new role.”

Farm Aid’s mission is to build a vibrant, family farm-centered system of agriculture in America. Farm Aid artists and board members Willie Nelson, Neil Young, John Mellencamp and Dave Matthews host an annual festival to raise funds to support Farm Aid’s work with family farmers and to inspire people to choose family farm food. For more than 35 years, Farm Aid, with the support of the artists who contribute their performances each year, has raised more than $60 million to support programs that help farmers thrive, expand the reach of the Good Food Movement, take action to change the dominant system of industrial agriculture and promote food from family farms.

Join the Luck Seed Summit Cannabis Convention, presented by Willie Nelson and Luck (4/26 – 4/29)

Wednesday, April 7th, 2021

Willie Nelson and Luck Presents announce first annual cannabis convention, Luck Summit: Planting the Seed, benefiting HeadCount’s Cannabis Voter Project.

The Virtual programming begins on 4/26 and will air through Willie Nelson’s birthday on 4/29

“I think people need to be educated to the fact that marijuana is not a drug. Marijuana is an herb and a flower. God put it here. If He put it here and He wants it to grow, what gives the government the right to say that God is wrong?”-Willie Nelson

Hosted by Nathanial Rateliff, the multi-day virtual summit seeks to destigmatize, educate, and promote cannabis culture in an informative and entertaining way. During the summit, Luck and fellow cannabis-advocate partners will showcase the cannabis plant through its many lenses including history, science, entertainment, and culture. In addition to panel discussions and keynote speakers, attendees will be treated to musical collaborations, comedy sketches, cooking demonstrations, health-focused activities, and more. 

Additionally, team Luck is pleased to announce a partnership with the good folks at HeadCount’s Cannabis Voter Project, an organization that informs, registers and turns out voters who are interested in cannabis policy. “Willie Nelson is a music and cannabis icon, so of course we’re thrilled to partner,” says Sam D’Arcangelo, Director of HeadCount’s Cannabis Voter Project.

“Texas and the rest of the United States are sitting at a cannabis crossroads right now. There’s no better time to celebrate how far we’ve come and have a conversation about where cannabis legalization goes from here.” All ticket proceeds from the summit will be donated to the Voter Project to aid in their efforts. 

Who is Planting the Seed for? The summit will hold space for honest, stripped down dialogue between industry veterans, casual connoisseurs, activists, artists, and everyone in between. Have something to say or questions about the benefits and opportunities surrounding hemp and cannabis as a commodity, and as medicine? This summit is for you.

What’s on the discussion docket? Civil discourse, building community, legalization through policy amendments, science, de-stigmatization, hemp and cannabis as commodity products and cash crops, taxation that aids the economy, decriminalization and pathways toward freeing non-violent offenders for cannabis convictions, de-stigmatizing cannabis in industries weary of engaging, cannabis history and prohibition, and so much more. 
The mission of the Luck Summit is to create a community discussion around destigmatizing, decriminalizing, and legalizing hemp and cannabis in the state of Texas and beyond. 

Sign up: Planting the Seed is a donation-based ticketed summit raising money for HeadCount’s Cannabis Voter Project. To register or for more information on the High Holidays, please visit high.holiday
Planting the Seed is the marque event of Luck’s “High Holidays,” a 9 day celebration of the cannabis plant and its many benefits which begins on 4/20 and ends on Willie’s birthday, 4/29.

Additionally, Luck Presents is petitioning the Biden Administration and Congress to make 4/20 to 4/29 the “High Holidays” in honor of the cannabis industry, and to celebrate Willie’s birthday.

Luck Presents is a rogue cultural collective headquartered in Willie Nelson’s Luck, TX. Anchored by its flagship event, the annual Luck Reunion, Luck Presents creates experiences that embrace our past while cultivating new traditions in American roots culture. 

HeadCount’s Cannabis Voter Project informs, registers, and turns out voters who want to see cannabis policy move forward. We believe cannabis reform is a unique issue with the power to turn large numbers of people into active participants in our democracy.
