NCF Welcomes Tom Ashbrook – Saturday, June 4

photoPlease join us in the barn at Newton Community Farm for an intimate evening of stories and conversation with Tom Ashbrook, Newton resident, farm enthusiast, and award-winning host of National Public Radio’s On Point. Tom will share stories of growing up on his family’s farm in the Midwest and discuss how that experience informs his adult life and his perspective on agriculture today. The evening will include conversation with our own farmer/scholar, Greg Maslowe, and a question-and-answer period with Mr. Ashbrook.

This event is part of Newton Community Farm’s 10th anniversary celebration, and all ticket proceeds will go toward funding our educational programs for students in grades K through 12. Tickets are available now $70 each for Friends of the Farm and $75 for non Friend of the Farm.
