Putnam Farm is town-owned conservation land acquired with the intent of restoring agriculture to Orleans. Thanks to COVID, a growing number of passionate growers and a multi-faceted, town-wide effort, that vision has become a reality. Join Rick for an informal discussion about what’s been accomplished, the impact it’s having on our community and upcoming plans for the year ahead. All are welcome.
Rick Francolini is a resident of Orleans who is passionate about the community-building potential of agriculture. He’s also an environmentalist who believes that education and advocacy – working hand in hand – can drive stewardship initiatives on public lands. Rick’s experience at Putnam has been a lesson in both.
