Please join Maine Coast Heritage Trust (MCHT) staff at Erickson Fields Preserve for an open farm day from 3-6 pm on Friday August 25th.   The Erickson Fields Teen Agricutural Crew (Teen Ag Crew) will lead tours of their 4-acre vegetable garden.   The Teen Ag Crew is an entrepreneurial internship for local teens that teaches them to manage a market garden.  This evening they will be showing off all their hard work this summer before returning to their local schools. The Erickson Fields Wellness trail, a 1.4-mile loop will be open as usual.  Enjoy farm fresh appetizers (grilled veggies from Erickson Fields and sliders from Aldermere beef) in an idyllic pastoral setting.  This is a kid-friendly event with children’s games and garden demonstrations in our ‘Kids Can Grow’ gardens.  This event is FREE and open to the public. Please join us and learn more about your community farm at Erickson Fields Preserve.   Erickson Fields is located at 124 West St. (rte. 90), ½ mile west of Rte 1.  For more information please contact Aldermere Farm at 207-236-2739 or email jalbury@mcht.org.  Look forward to seeing you on the farm
