A Sense of Community: Life in Kent’s Farms

The next Sunday Series event in “A Sense of Community: Life in Kent’s Farms” will take place March 18 at 2:00 in Town Hall. It will focus on Farming in Kent, and feature a roundtable with farmers from today and yesterday. Local agriculture in the 1950’s was still going strong, but in the 1960’s and ‘70’s it fell into a decline. More recently it is experiencing a comeback, led by the Kent Land Trust Farm under the stewardship of Megan Haney. Future topics will include the Village, and Newcomers, in which residents who weren’t born here will reflect on what brought them to Kent. We hope we can continue the emotional high of Marge Smith’s talk!
