Broadturn Farm: More Than a CSA
Library Meeting Room

Image: John Bliss and Stacy BrennerOver the past eight years, Stacy Brenner and John Bliss have been dedicated stewards of Broadturn Farm—a property protected by the Scarborough Land Trust through a conservation easement. They have successfully transformed the property from a vacant piece of farmland at the end of a traditional farming lineage, to a revitalized community-centered organic farm with a novel approach to tenancy and ownership.

Hear the story of how Stacy and John developed this full working farm that includes Community Supported Agriculture memberships (CSA), farming education programs, summer camp experiences for youth, a floral design studio - Flora Bliss, a sought-after wedding venue, and organic food provisions for local business. The program is free and open to the public and will offer light refreshments.
