The Conanicut Island Land Trust is set to the host its Hey Day celebration at the Godena Farm in Jamestown, Rhode Island, according to the Jamestown Press.
Hey Day will feature educational demonstrations in addition to the usual schedule of activities that range from wagon rides through fields to games for kids. Nick DiGiando, a local hardware store owner, will discuss the role of the John Deere tractor in the life of the American farmer, reported the news source.
Quentin Anthony, the president of the Conanicut Island Land Trust, said that the event was conceived to honor open spaces and the role of farming in the lives of Americans.
"Historically, Hey Day has made food available to the public, and provided places to sit to enjoy the sun and air," Anthony told the Press. "It’s very much a family-oriented event. We’ve added some demonstrations because we think that people will enjoy seeing eight or nine John Deere tractors from over the years, and how they operate."
The Conanicut Island Land Trust was formed in 1984 as part of an effort to promote the preservation of natural resources and farming in Jamestown, Rhode Island, according to the organization's website.
