October Auburn Storywalk focuses on city’s agriculture

AUBURN — This month’s Storywalk, located along the city’s Riverwalk, highlights local agriculture.
Auburn’s Agriculture Committee created the 16-station displa showing the contribution that farms and woodlots in Auburn’s Agriculture and Resource Protection Zone make to the local economy, food supply and character.
The Storywalk stations provide information and identify resources available to farmers and woodlot owners. The value of woodlands, local food supply and farmers markets arehighlighted, as well as the real issue of hunger in Maine.
The Agriculture Committee also collaborated with the Auburn Conservation Commission to present information about selected local invasive plants and insects, including the browntail moth. The display will be up through the end of October.
