Current & New Tools to Support Farms in Your Town - POSTPONED TO 3/26

Date: 
Wed, 03/14/2018 - 8:30am - 11:00am
Location: 
Kendall Meeting Room, John C. Coombs Municipal Building at 13 School Street

Co-hosted by GrowSmart Maine and Bowdoinham Community Development Initiative

Hear community & municipal leaders share policy approaches and practical ideas for ways communities and farmers can benefit from working together. Maine’s food system and local food movement are growing and provide unique economic and community development opportunities in rural and suburban areas. 

We encourage farmers, land owners and anyone that owns farmland in the town to attend.  Attendees will come away knowing how to enable their community to work together with current and future farmers to protect and build on Maine’s agricultural heritage and potential. Our panel of experts will share how you and your hometown can welcome and retain small agricultural businesses.

Stephanie Gilbert, Farm Viability & Farmland Protection Specialist with the Maine Dept. of Agriculture, Conservation, & Forestry will moderate this panel discussion, followed by ample time for audience Q&A and networking with community partners.

Panelists will be announced soon
