Rockport — Maine Coast Heritage Trust invites the community for a Harvest Celebration Sunday, Sept. 16, from 2 to 4 p.m. at Erickson Fields Preserve, 164 West St. (Rte 90), Rockport.

MCHT’s Teen Agriculture Crew will give tours of their four-acre vegetable garden where they raise over 20,000 pounds annually to supply hunger-relief agencies, public schools, retirement communities and local restaurants. During the tour, visitors will learn about MCHT's Community Ag programs hosted at Erickson Fields: Kids Can Grow, a Community Garden and the Teen Ag program, an entrepreneurial internship for local teens that teaches them to manage a market garden. There will also be games for children, music, garden produce to sample and pumpkin picking.

This is a free, family-friendly event for all ages. For more information about the event, contact Aldermere Farm at 236-2739. For more information about Erickson Fields and MCHT, visit mcht.org.
