Effective Listening

Agricultural Education Day

word of month character

This Saturday according to an announcement in the paper last night, there will be an Agricultural Education Day in Harwood Maryland at the corner of Rt 2 South and Birdsville Road.  The event will be held from 11 AM to 6 PM with all sorts of displays and demonstrations.  Though I have not been to this event before, it sounds like an interesting event with the opportunity to get to learn a little more about our local food producers.  
For more information you can go to their site at Agricultural Day.  I am going to try to spend a little bit of time their myself, as I am interested in promoting the idea of awareness of where our food comes from and getting to know and appreciate our local farmers.  Maybe we will see you there.
