Camden — Farming in Maine, with its short growing season and limited infrastructure, challenges farmers' ability to contribute to our state's food security while making a living. Join the  series when a panel of Maine women in agriculture will discuss what's happening from the State House to the fields. The event is Tuesday, Nov. 12, from 6:30 to 7:45 p.m. at the Camden Public Library, 55 Main St.

The Featured Storytellers include Stephanie Gilbert, Farm Viability and Farmland Protection Specialist at the Maine Department of Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry; Bonnie Rukin, Community activist and Slow Money Maine coordinator; and Marada Cook, the General Manager and a Worker Owner at Crown O' Maine, which distributes locally grown produce across the state. This event will be moderated by Ladleah Dunn, a farmer, sailor, business owner, and consultant based in Lincolnville.

The Midcoast Women’s Collective provides opportunities for area women of all ages to find and strengthen their individual and shared voices.

The Collective Voices series is free and open to the public.
