Symposium at Wyck

August 18, 2011

Have you been trying to figure out how to incorporate agriculture into your historic site but aren’t sure where to start? Do you need to find new ways to increase visitorship and revenue?

Join Wyck for an “Agriculture Training Symposium for Historic Sites and Museum Professionals”. On September 23 from 9AM- 4PM, they will explore the use of agriculture at historic sites and museums to increase visitorship, grow fundraising opportunities, and develop new community partnerships. Presenters include the Jane Addams Hull-House Museum, Temple University Fox School of Business, The Wyck Association, Awbury Arboretum, Weavers Way Food Co-op and Grumblethorpe. Through case studies of historic sites and museums, a workshop led by Temple University’s Fox School of Business on developing business models, and tours of Wyck’s farm and site, all present can share ideas, isolate trends, and offer ways for your organization to take advantage of possibilities that your musuem or site has to offer.

Wyck has taken advantage of all opportunities to incorporate agriculture and farming into their beautiful historic site! With their successful Farmer’s Market every Friday this summer from 2-6 PM, home farm, and community driven events on the local and sustainable food movement, we suggest to come out to their Symposium to learn some tricks of the trade! Grumblethorpe and Awbury Arboretum are presenters during the event as well, and have had extremely successful summer initiatives! Learn more about them here!

Register before August 31 for a reduced rate. For more information visit their website.
