Join us on Sunday, September 16th for a Harvest Celebration from 2:00-4:00 pm at Erickson Fields Preserve, 164 West Street (Rte 90) in Rockport.
MCHT’s Teen Agriculture Crew will give tours of their 4-acre vegetable garden where they raise over 20,000 pounds of produce annually to supply hunger relief agencies, public schools, retirement communities and local restaurants.
Come learn about our community ag programs hosted at Erickson Fields - there's something for everyone and all ages! Our programs include Kids Can Grow, a Community Garden, and the Teen Ag program, an entrepreneurial internship for local teens that teaches them to manage a market garden.
The day will include games for children, music, garden produce to sample, and pumpkin picking.
This is a free, family-friendly event for all ages.
For more information, contact Aldermere Farm at 207-236-2739.
