Story time at the farm
MILLERTON — It was a beautiful summer day for the NorthEast-Millerton Library and the Amenia Free Library to host Story Hour at McEnroe Organic Farm in Millerton on Friday, Aug. 6.
Beginning at 9:30 a.m., the children attending the event with their family members listened to a story read by McEnroe Organic Farm Education Coordinator Michelle Bissett. They also got the chance to explore the farm, thereby engaging in an interactive reading experience in which they learned about farming and then got to observe it in action.
As an ongoing goal, Bissett said she tries to teach people about all the work that goes into getting food on the plate, so people can understand where their food comes from and appreciate food accessibility and availability.
