Buckets of Rain performs “This Land is Your Land” for 72 hours straight

From staff reports

Again, this year, local musicians and performers are donating their time and talent to perform the Woody Guthrie classic, “This Land is Your Land” over and over (and over …) on a street corner in downtown Traverse City. They will be there, rain or shine, day and night for three straight days, singing their hearts out to help the hungry. And you can help.

Buckets of Rain, the nonprofit that organized this musical marathon, provides sustainable gardens and fresh vegetables to impoverished areas of the world, including overseas and in inner-city Detroit. These community gardens not only provide fresh veggies to those who need them the most, they also establish a sense of community and pride in neighborhoods that many have written off. The nonprofit will yield over 100,000 servings of fresh vegetables in Detroit alone this year. Visit BucketsofRain.org for details.
