Local on-farm community meals planned

in Albany/Arts and Entertainment/Island Pond/Newport

farmNEWPORT — Free to the public and kids are welcome, so what better way to share in the Fall harvest then at one of several on-farm community meals.

This fall, the Lunchbox, as part of Green Mountain Farm to School, is partnering with farms in the Northeast Kingdom to bring everyone a delicious free meal, a place to gather with the community, and hopefully enough sunshine to keep everyone warm.

Donations are encouraged to help fund their work. Check the schedule below to find out where to go. The events range from harvest festivals to on-farm workshops. Contact khansis@gmfts.org for specific information or directions.
