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.
