Chestnuts and the HemlockFest Virtual Festival 2020

Chestnut Enthusiasts!

Check out this video “thank you” to Lumpkin Coalition and Hemlockfest music festival for their past support of GA-TACF’s American chestnut restoration program. It features long-time TACF supporter and master keyboardist Chuck Leavell, as well as a brief background on the work TACF is doing. HemlockFest is normally a three day camping, music, arts and crafts, and outdoor activities fund raiser that takes place near Dahlonega the first weekend in November.  Nearly $50,000 in festival proceeds have come to GA-TACF over the past four years!  See hemlockfest.org/blog/ to learn more about this year’s Nov. 7 virtual event – please “attend” if you can.  A shorter version of this video (without the “sciency” stuff in the middle) will play during the event itself. Among many other great musical acts, the Indigo Girls will be playing!
