Program Type:Special Event
The Family Farm History Foundation, Ames Historical Society, and Ames Public Library are proud to present an afternoon of family farm memories that are worth telling and preserving for all generations.
Join us for free performances of Map of My Kingdom and Farm-to-Fork Tales.
In Map of My Kingdom Angela Martin, a lawyer and mediator in land transition disputes, shares stories of how farmers and landowners she has worked with over the years approached their land transitions.
Farm-to-Fork Tales features storytellers sharing specific events on their Century Farms—incidents unique to them but universal in their resonances for the wider world of agriculture.
Both productions are projects of Mary Swander—the Poet Laureate of Iowa, the Artistic Director of Swander Woman Productions, and the Executive Director of AgArts.
The Family Farm History Foundation will be there to share how you can preserve your family's memories or help someone else plus have a platform to show your family or the world. Feel free to bring some of your farm photos or stories to share.
Provided in partnership with Ames Public Library, Ames Historical Society, Family Farm History Foundation, and Practical Farmers of Iowa. Supported by the Ames Public Library Friends Foundation.
