Hear community & municipal leaders share policy approaches and practical ideas for ways communities and farmers can benefit from working together.

Attendees will come away knowing how to enable their community to work together with current and future farmers to protect and build on Maine’s agricultural heritage and potential. Our panel of experts will share how you and your hometown can welcome and retain small agricultural businesses.
