The Greatest Source of Wealth: Agriculture in Concord
October 12, 2012 - March 17, 2013
In celebration of Concord’s farming tradition, past and present, “The Greatest Source of Wealth: Agriculture in Concord,” a new exhibition and related programming at the Concord Museum, explores the changing agricultural landscape of Concord over time. In Concord today, farmers, educators, planners, environmental activists, food distributors, health professionals, parents, and policymakers are engaged in a community-wide discussion about building local food connections. The town’s agrarian heritage and historic farmland are compelling starting points for that conversation. The exhibition focuses on the innovations of the 19th century, when Concord was at the forefront of agricultural reform, the 20th-century legacy of immigrant farmers who made Concord home, and the challenges of the 21st century.
“The Greatest Source of Wealth: Agriculture in Concord” is on view from October 12, 2012 through March 17, 2013 at the Concord Museum in historic Concord, Massachusetts. Media Sponsor is Edible Boston.
