The Greatest Source of Wealth: Agriculture in Concord

October 12, 2012 — March 17, 2013


In Concord, farmers, educators, planners, environmental activists, food distributors, health professionals, parents, and policymakers engage in community-wide discussions about building local food connections. The town’s agrarian heritage and historic farmland were compelling starting points for that conversation. In celebration of this farming tradition, past and present, The Greatest Source of Wealth: Agriculture in Concord, explored the changing agricultural landscape of Concord over time. The exhibition focused on both the innovations of the 19th century, when Concord was at the forefront of agricultural reform, and the challenges of the 21st century.
