NH Agriculture in the Classroom and the NH Farm Museum are teaming up to present a workshop for teachers on how to interpret the clues to our state’s agricultural heritage in the landscape and buildings of our communities. Farm Museum Director Kathleen Shea and Smith will lead this training which is geared, but not limited to teachers of grades 3-5, at the NH Farm Museum in Milton on October 11 from 4:00-6:30. Participants will get to meet some Merino sheep—descendants of the ‘sheep mania’ breed that brought booming prosperity to our state— cleared pastures and stone walls to our hillsides, imposing farmhouses to our villages and farms, and red-brick and stone mills to Manchester and other river towns. Space is limited and pre-registration is required. Contact Ruth Smith at email@example.com or 603-224-1934.
