Jun 11: “Putnam Farm – Realizing the Vision” with Rick Fancolini

10:00 a.m. Sunday, June 11, 2023

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.

Live at Chapel in the Pines.

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.
