Live Music, Local Flavor and ‘Green News’ – October 3rd!
On Thursday, October 3rd starting at 6 PM in the brand new wing of the Laconia High School, spend the early evening enjoying live music, local foods and participating in discussions that influence how our local natural assets are managed.
The evening, brought to you by the Belknap County Conservation District, will open with local acoustical guitar artist Don Watson and a delicious variety of refreshments provided by the staff of the Local Eatery. Afterward, there will be short informational presentations on the results of the NH Governor’s Water Sustainability Commission (including what the public had to say about our state’s water resources); local grassroots efforts that improve our access to fresh locally produced food and ‘food security’; agricultural projects helping commercial and private growers in the region; and breathtaking Mt. Major and the hiking trails of the Belknap Range — hikers are often surprised how many of the trails are not publically owned.
Pre-registration for the gathering is requested by September 30th. There is a small registration fee that can be refunded if you bring 4 pounds of fresh, uncooked, uncut locally grown vegetables from your garden or purchased at a local farm stand to the event. This produce will be donated to a local food pantry. For more information call BCCD at telephone 527-5880 or visit website www.belknapccd.org
