Farmers table at Council on Aging

The Amesbury Council on Aging is embarking on cultivating a new program — a farmers table. Starting June 2, a table will be located in the lobby of the COA at 68 Elm St. People who are growing fresh fruits and veggies and have an abundance are asked to drop them off to the farmers table.

The table will be open to all who come to the center to take home the well-loved fruits and veggies.

When an abundance of produce is brought in, these fresh items will be served with the daily meals served at the COA. For more information, contact Annmary Connor, Amesbury COA director, at 978-388-8138.
