Second Agricultural Listening Session Planned

April 26, 2018
Event Date: 
Thursday, April 26, 2018 - 6:30pm

Following a successful public event in March, the Kingston Planning Board will hold its second agricultural land use Public Listening Session on April 26, 2018 at 6:30 pm in the Kingston Town Hall.  Glenn Greenwood, Kingston's Circuit Rider Planner, will once again lead an open discussion of agricultrual land use in the town of Kingston, specifically on Agritourism related activities.  Farming is a demanding profession in many ways, not the least of which is being able to generate enough revenue to remain profitable.  Some farms are turning to Agritourism as a way to supplement income and bring awareness of farming and agriulture to the general public.  Agritourism activities can vary widely in size and scope, sometimes presenting challenging land use issues. 

Come join the conversation at this open Listening Session.  The Planning Board would like to hear your thoughts on Agritourism.  Have you experienced it first hand at a local farm?  Are you a farmer actively engaged in Agritourism activities or planning to do so?  Are you an abutter to a farm with, or without, Agritourism activity?  Do you want to learn more about Agritourism?

Please join us on April 26th and share your thoughts and ideas.  Light refreshments will be served.
