Good Work is Membership

Please join us on Sunday, June 3rd, 2018 at 7:30pm for a public talk by Mary Berry, Executive Director of The Berry Center.  The event will take place at Saint James Place in Great Barrington, MA.

“What will it take for farmers to be able to afford to farm well?” and “How do we become a culture that supports good farming and land use?” These are just a few of the questions that Mary Berry will address in her talk.

Berry is currently working to restore a culture that has been lost in rural America: a healthy countryside populated by prosperous farmers feeding the cities near them. She continues the advocacy of her grandfather, father, and uncle for farmers, land conserving communities, and healthy regional economies.

Admission is free. To pre-register, email schumacher@centerforneweconomics.org or call (413) 528-1737.
