B9 - Country Life and Community Life in Foster BUS TOUR*

Saturday April 25, 2015  2:00 3:15 pm

Jess Pykosz, Farm Manager, Borders Farm Preservation, Inc.
Ed Robinson, President, Foster Preservation Society


This tour connects the story of individual families whose farms were scattered across the countryside to the villages where they gathered to eat and to drink, to worship, to learn, to shop, and to govern.  We start with a visit to a 200-acre, 19th-century farmstead donated by the Borders family to a non-profit that works the land, hosts public programs, and preserves the property in perpetuity.  Then we visit the village hamlet of Foster Center which developed in the late 18th century and continues to serve as the focus of community and civic life.
