Topsham library hosts 'Farmlife Hoopla'

TOPSHAM — Free children's programs, called "Farmlife Hoopla," are being held at the Topsham Public Library next month.

The programs are offered by Local Farms-Local Food, a collaboration of the Brunswick-Topsham Land Trust and Kennebec Estuary Land Trust that promotes local food and farmland conservation.

The three-part series – held Wednesdays from 4-5 p.m. for children 4 and older – includes agriculture-themed stories, as well as speakers and activities, to improve children's appreciation for and understanding of where food comes from.

"What came first: The Chicken or the Egg?" starts at the 25 Foreside Road library on Nov. 7, followed by "Good Golly Gourds!" on Nov. 14 and "It's the farmer's life for me" on Nov. 28.

Contact Mariah Sewall at or 725-1727 to register. Parents are encouraged to participate in the activities.
