April brings the Camden Garden Club’s first monthly meeting of 2014, featuring a program called Community Programs at Erickson Fields Preserve.

On Thursday, April 24, the public is cordially invited to come to the Congregational Church, Route 1, Camden (at the light) at 9 a.m. for refreshments, 9:30 a.m. for the program, and 10:30 a.m. for the business meeting.

Erickson Fields Preserve is located in Rockport and is managed by Maine Coast Heritage Trust’s Aldermere Farm staff. It was a dairy farm for many generations until the Erickson family stopped farming in the 1980s. Maine Coast Heritage acquired the property to conserve this productive farm land in Midcoast Maine and to use it as an educational and hands-on resource for the community.
