AGRICULTURE: The Roots of the Endless Mountains
with Mike Lovegreen
Friday, March 23rd at 1PM
Agriculture today remains vital to the regional economy and is at the heart of our shared heritage in the Endless Mountains. This presentation launches an exciting new project to raise awareness of the changing face of agriculture in the Endless Mountains Heritage Region, past, present and future.
When the first white settlers arrived in the Endless Mountains, they found flourishing Native American agriculture that included corn and other crops. That early history endures to today with farming being the backbone not only of our economy, but our culture and heritage, influencing our relationship with the land, our neighbors and our government.
Mike Lovegreen, former Bradford County Conservation District Manager for 33 years and current EMHR board member, will present an overview of the often veiled extent of agriculture’s role and influence in the region. The presentation, as well as the following open discussion will be based on the recently completed Agricultural Viability Study conducted with EMHR funding.
FREE: GENERAL ADMISSION
CINDERELLA: Spring Play
Nelle Black Westgate Auditorium
