Erickson Fields Preserve to host Harvest Celebration

Posted:  Thursday, August 24, 2017 - 9:30pm

ROCKPORT — The public is invited to join Maine Coast Heritage Trust (MCHT) staff at Erickson Fields Preserve for an open farm day from 3 to 6 p.m. on Friday, August 25.

The Erickson Fields Teen Agricultural 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.

In the evening, they will be showing off their hard work of the 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.
