The East Lyme Natural Resources and Agriculture Commission is sponsoring two workshops introducing small- scale agriculture and sustainable practices any property owner can use. These workshops are lead by local residents who will share their experiences and expertise. Newly passed town ordinances make producing your own food easier than ever to start at home. Both workshops will be held at the Samuel Smith Farmstead, Plants Dam Road, East Lyme.
