NESFP Farm Tour 2009 A Huge Success

On August 6, 2009, New Entry’s annual Farm Tour became our biggest public event ever. More than 100 visitors – ranging from World Peas CSA farm shareholders, other local agriculture producers, people interested in local sustainable agriculture, to curious neighbors – joined us at Richardson’s Dairy for an insider’s look at the New Entry fields and an introduction to our farmers.
The tour was led by New Entry staff, with personal experiences recounted by farmers currently involved in our training program, in order for visitors to understand the symbiotic relationship that exists here between the two groups.
To make the event even more special, food and refreshments were prepared and provided by Fresh Roots, a Lowell organization that focuses on empowering local youth with practical work experiences that revolve around sustainability and urban agriculture. The Fresh Roots team used fresh produce from our farmers to create an amazing summer spread.
If we didn’t see you on the 6th, we hope to see you at next year’s tour!
