Manchester's Agricultural Future: March 22nd


Think agriculture in Manchester is a thing of the past? Think again.

All members of the Manchester community are invited to attend a workshop on the present and future of agriculture in Manchester on Tuesday, March 22nd at 7:00 p.m. in the Great Path Community Commons on the Manchester Community College campus.

Many participants at the 2020 quadrant discovery workshops suggested preserving and encouraging agricultural activities in town as important goals for the community. This workshop will provide a brief overview of Manchester's agricultural history, examples of the diverse agricultural activities that currently exist in town, and how these and similar activities can be protected and encouraged in the future. The benefits of and current trends in local food production will also be addressed.
