The Simsbury View: Gifts of Love Community Farm Merge
Host, Althea Greaney.
This show will focus on one of Simsbury's unique institutions -- the Community Farm of Simsbury, located on Wolcott Road, not far from the Simsbury airport. The Farm just recently merged with another local institution- this one headquartered in Avon called Gifts of Love.
Both organizations were originally founded to help people in need.
The farm around 1883 and Gifts of Love, a little more than 100 years later, in 1989 - showing perhaps that poverty, people down on their luck, and issues of hunger never go away.
With us today is Diana Goode, the Executive Director of Gifts of Love, and Maggie Saska who is the Garden Manager of the Farm. Also joining us is Mickey Lecours-Beck who is the Director of Social Services for the town of Simsbury.
