Participants in the Kids Can Grow program show off their harvest at Erickson Fields Preserve.
Join us for a Harvest Celebration from 2:00-4:00 pm at Erickson Fields Preserve, 164 West Street (Rte 90) in Rockport. MCHT’s Teen Agriculture Crew will give tours of their 4-acre vegetable garden where they raise over 20,000 lbs annually to supply hunger relief agencies, public schools, retirement communities and local restaurants. During the tour, visitors will learn about MCHT's community ag programs hosted at Erickson Fields: Kids Can Grow, a Community Garden and the Teen Ag program, an entrepreneurial internship for local teens that teaches them to manage a market garden. There will also be games for children, music, garden produce to sample and pumpkin picking. This is a free, family-friendly event for all ages.
