Amherst farmers invited to agricultural forum

Farmers and others involved in the agricultural community will participate in an open forum Thursday.

“What’s Growing On” will be a discussion about what is happening at local farms and what is being planned for the future.

Moderated by state Rep. Ellen Story, D-Amherst, the event will be held from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Town Room at Town Hall.

Representatives from the Amherst Area Chamber of Commerce and municipal staff will be on hand to answer questions and assist with creating a strategic framework related to community needs for farmers and their goals.

Light refreshments will be served.

For information, contact Stephanie Ciccarello at 259-3149 or ciccarellos@amherstma.gov, or Rebecca Fricke at 687-8722 or rebecca.fricke@mahouse.gov.
