Exhibition at the Underground Gallery with Agricultural Stewardship Association: “Kids, Farm, Photography: Connecting with the Land”

March 22, 2013 June 15, 2013 EDT

Connecting with the Land (on view from March 22 – June 15, 2013) is a photography exhibit that lets us experience local farms through the eyes of youth. The photos were taken during photography classes at farms in Rensselaer and Washington counties. The Farm Photography for Kids is a program by the Agricultural Stewardship Association (ASA) a community-supported land trust dedicated to protecting our local farmland from encroaching development. High school students in photography classes visited rural farms in Rensselaer and Washington counties, while urban youth involved in the Capital District Community Gardens Produce Project documented their 8th Street Farm in Troy and Soul Fire Farm in Grafton. With special guests from the Produce Project and Agricultural Stewardship Association.

Reception food prepared by Produce Project and KitchenSanctuary.
