Madison Historical Society Presents Lee Lecture Series

Madison Historical Society Presents Lee Lecture Series


       The Madison Historical Society will present the second in its series of Frederick Lee lectures on Sunday, February 9 at 4 pm at Memorial Town Hall, 8 Meetinghouse Lane in Madison. The subject of this year's lecture series is "Local Roots:  An Exploration of the Past, Present, and Future of Shoreline Agriculture."   The featured presenter on February 9 will be Kingsley Goddard of Barberry Hill Farm in a lecture entitled Keeping Your Eyes to the Sky:  An All-Organic Bounty on the Boston Post Road.
     Working on an iconic property in the heart of Madison's Connecticut Scenic Highway portion of the Boston Post Road, Kingsley Goddard, his family, and the workers who join them on their farm are committed to sustainable and organic agricultural practices that ensure the safety and quality of their produce, eggs, and flowers.  Sold at their popular farm stand, through their CSA, and and at Madison's weekly Farm Market, of which KIngsley is the market master, these flowers, fruits, and vegetables include heirloom and hard-to-find varieties and are grown without the use of pesticides, herbicides, or fungicides.
     Tickets to the lecture on February 9 are $5 ($4 for Madison Historical Society members) and $2 for children ages 10 to 18.  For more information, please call 203-245-4567 or visit  www.madisoncthhistorical.org.
    The Frederick Lee lecture series is made possible by a grant from Connecticut Humanities and is co-sponsored by the Madison Beach and Recreation Department.
