Gregory Sharrow talks about Vermont’s farm legacy in Humanities Council event

Tuesday, Oct. 13 at 7:30 p.m. — CHITTENDEN — On Tuesday, Oct. 13 at 7:30 p.m., the Chittenden Historical Society will host a Vermont Humanities Council event. Gregory Sharrow of the Vermont Folklife Center will present, “A Sense of Place: Vermont’s Farm Legacy” at the North Chittenden Grange Hall, 3 Lower Middle Road.

Just as the character of a place is shaped by its cultural heritage, the cultural legacy of farming has strongly influenced the identity of Vermonters, and it is these distinctive traditions that help make the state unique. In his talk, Gregory will explore the fabric of the farm culture of the past in shaping Vermont’s cultural heritage and will probe its relationship to life in Vermont today.

This program is free, open to the public and accessible to people with disabilities. Contact the Chittenden Historical Society at 802-483-6471 for more information.
