This is a rebroadcast of an earlier show (original air date May 3, 2019); no calls will be taken.

Granges have been integral to the history of rural Maine, serving not only as places for farmers to organize and advocate for themselves, but as educational sites, social hubs, and community centers. We learn about how some Granges have carried on the traditions of the past, while others have evolved to serve new purposes in their communities, bringing new vitality to rural Maine.
