This is a sort of public service announcement for the north Berkshire community. If you’re not part of it, feel free to skip this post.
I’ve been involved in the very nascent stages of Glynwood’s Keep Farming initiative here in town and I’d like to invite local readers to spread the word about this upcoming meeting, which is a sort of open house to learn more about the process, and try to get representatives from all over this part of the Berkshires. Please read on and share if this interests you, and contact me if you want more information.
Keep Farming Community Forum
Northern Berkshire community members have just begun working with Glynwood and the Berkshire Regional Planning Commission to initiate a process to understand challenges and opportunities facing our local farms and food system, and to then develop strategies to support and grow our local food system. This community-driven process will begin this spring and last about a year. If you’re interested in learning more or want to get involved, join us for an informational meeting:
All Saints Church
89 Summer Street
Monday, April 18
Berkshire Regional Planning Commission and Glynwood will provide an overview of the process and how community input will help drive policies and initiatives to help support farms and food at both the local and regional levels.
We hope to see representatives from all north Berkshire communities there! Please feel free to forward this information to anyone you know in Adams, Cheshire, Clarksburg, Florida, New Ashford, North Adams, Savoy, or Williamstown who may be interested.
