A Sense of Place: Vermont's Farm Legacy

August 15, 2014

A Sense of Place: Vermont's Farm Legacy. The character of a place is shaped by its cultural heritage and folklife, the informal traditions of family and community that guide the ways in which a person plans a meal, treats a neighbor, or understands civic responsibility. In Vermont the cultural legacy of farming has strongly influenced the identity of Vermonters, and it is these distinctive traditions, which have persisted even with the decline in farm numbers, that help make the state unique. This lecture by Gregory Sharrow explores the fabric of farm culture in the past and probes its relationship to the world of Vermont today.

Hosted by the Landgrove Meetinghouse.  Funded grant program of the Vermont Humanities Council and a state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities, Washington, D.C.
