Of Farms and Fables combines the efforts of professional and non-professional artists by engaging artists in farm work and farm workers in storytelling and acting. The result will be an original performance in October of 2011 which will engage performers and audience in dialogue about local agriculture, farming, and the future of small family farms in Maine.

Flash Back! (Jennie)

My blog assignment this week is to share something from the past . . . in a "visual" way. I've been thinking a lot lately about the VERY BEGINNING of this project. For Penny Jordan and I, that's way back in the winter of 2008. Penny is one of our partnering farmers and she was also the first champion of the project, our first Community Partner. Here's a little collage documenting Of Farms and Fables' first year (or two), complete with the very first e-mail. There are currently 1,380 conversations that are tagged "OFAF" in my e-mail account.

And now, to flash forward: Cory left us today after a whirlwind four-day visit. Here she is and off she goes! We'll chat soon, for there's lots of revising to do, and we'll see in her back in Maine in October. Happy travels, Cory!
