Announcing Tours in 2011 of the Hardwick Region
January 31, 2010, Hardwick, VT - Have you ever wondered about the farms and food businesses in the Hardwick area after reading an article, hearing a news blurb or eating some of their products? Well, now is your chance to join us while exploring the region's many farms and businesses.
Beginning and ending at the Center for an Agricultural Economy (CAE), join an all day caravan tour with one of our Board members. Our first tour is February 17th, then beginning April 21st, the 3rd Thursday of every month until October. Hear the stories, tour the facilities and meet the people that help make this area so rich in community-based agricultural enterprises as well as the subject of countless news articles and most recently, a book.
Starting on the S. Main St. office of CAE at 10am, Tom Stearns, president of the CAE Board and owner of High Mowing Organic Seeds or Pete Johnson, treasurer of the CAE Board and owner of Pete’s Greens, will lead a group of up to 25 people, caravan-style, to several different farms and/or businesses in Hardwick, Craftsbury, Albany, Greensboro and East Hardwick. The tours will be informative, fast paced, fascinating and a fun way to experience the area. The tour costs $50 per person and is free to children 10 years and younger, accompanied by an adult.
