Concord Farms: Resilience, Revolutionaries, and Renegades

September 07, 2021 6:30 PM — 8:00 PM

Overview

The place we call Concord has been home to thriving agriculture communities for thousands of years.  Throughout that time, farmers have faced threats against their livelihood and culture from colonization, slavery, climate change, commercial agriculture, and -most recently- a global pandemic.  Through these hardships, is a story of resilience.  The Concord farmer, who put down the plow to fire the first shots on the British Empire, is not the faint-hearted.  Join us for a panel discussion on both the history of agriculture in Concord and the future for which today’s farmers are preparing.  This evening will be both informative and celebratory as we help spread the word about the richness of the Town’s agricultural resources to residents of Concord and beyond.
