Rotary Club of New Bedford, MA - Weekly GAM


GAM...A nautical term describing the exchange of news between vessels departing from and returning to their ports...



November 16, 2016  


This Week


The speaker was Dan King, the farmer from YMCA Dartmouth’s Sharing the Harvest Community Farm, invited by Jerry.  Dan is comes from a long line of local farmers that farm with sustainable practices.  He shared that the Sharing the Harvest Community Farm has donated thousands of pounds of fresh food to local food pantries.  We also learned about the new egg program with roving hen houses.  It was a very entertaining and heartfelt talk he gave.

Rental agent: "This house has one or two drawbacks which I feel I must mention. It is bounded on the north by gasworks, on the south by a rubber factory, on the east by a vinegar distillery, and on the west by a glue factory".
