ROCKPORT — The Maine Coast Heritage Trust will hold a harvest celebration and gleaning party 2-5 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 29, at Erickson Fields Preserve, 164 West St.
All ages are welcome for tours of the Teen Agriculture Crew’s 4-acre garden, samples of its harvest and a guided gleaning party to collect produce for food pantries. This is an opportunity for a behind-the-scenes look at a primarily teen-run agriculture operation that annually produces 25,000+ lbs of produce for the midcoast community, including five area food pantries and the MSAD 28 school lunch program.
In conjunction with the Harvest Celebration, Erickson Fields will be celebrating its 10th anniversary as a Maine Coast Heritage Trust preserve.
Attendees planning to join the Gleaning Party must wear closed-toed shoes and dress for outdoor work. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
RSVPs are appreciated to firstname.lastname@example.org.
