Bushel is a volunteer-run, mixed-use space dedicated to arts, agriculture, ecology, and action. Located on Main Street in Delhi, New York (pop. 5,117), it was founded by a small group of area residents as an exploration of the relationships and conversations that can be forged in a low-population area through the hosting of exhibitions, performances, screenings, discussions, meetings, workshops, reading groups, swaps, mutual aid, and more. An explicitly anti-racist, anti-capitalist, anti-patriarchal, and anti-imperial experiment, Bushel is grounded in the belief that gathering is essential for collective resistance and imagining. The experiment remains unwritten, indeterminate, and open-ended.

How Bushel Works
Bushel is a project of If / Then Inc., a tax-exempt, 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. It is maintained by a small, evolving collective of area residents who decided to take a chance on a non-commercial endeavor in a Main Street storefront. While we have agreed to volunteer our time and to split the cost of rent and utilities when monthly revenues don’t meet overhead, our goal—sometimes met, sometimes not—is for Bushel to be fully self-supported from a combination of: suggested donations collected at events and workshops, commissions on the sale of art and books, proceeds from renting the space, and contributions and grants. If you’re interested in volunteering, please contact us at info@bushelcollective.org. If you’d like to make a contribution, you can donate online (we thank you!). Also, valuable support starts with coming to Bushel events and spreading the word.
