Mills River Day 2015 was a wonderful success. We had even more visitors than last year–nearly a thousand people showed up to celebrate the river that connects us all. More than thirty booths decorated North River Farm, teaching about everything from soil and water conservation to fun summer camps to agriculture.
Huge thanks to everyone who made this day possible! The Mills River Partnership put on this event, and we’re so grateful that we were able to have it at North River Farms. We enjoyed all of the booths, music, authors, vendors, and community members who came out to make Mills River Day 2015 the best one yet.
Thanks again, and we hope to see you next time!
