PORTLAND — Maine Historical Society and Maine Farmland Trust to present “The Land that Sustains Us: Stories from the Field” at 6 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 15, at the historical society, 489 Congress St.
No matter how many seasons they have been with their soil, farmers develop a strong connection with their land. For each farmer, this relationship is unique and manifests differently into the food we eat and the communities we live in.

Maine Farmland Trust will host three farmers for a live storytelling night at the Maine Historical Society to explore these relationships. The yearlong exhibitions, Maine Eats: The Food Revolution Starts Here, will be open and available for viewing. Light, local food will be served after the program.

$10 for MHS & MFT Members, $15 General Admission.
