    In celebration of Concord's farming tradition, past and present, "The Greatest Source of Wealth: Agriculture in Concord," a special exhibition and related programming at the Concord Museum, explores the changing agricultural landscape of Concord over time. In Concord today, farmers, educators, planners, environmental activists, food distributors, health professionals, parents, and policymakers are engaged in a community-wide discussion about building local food connections. The town's agrarian heritage and historic farmland are compelling starting points for that conversation. The exhibition focuses on the innovations of the 19th century, when Concord was at the forefront of agricultural reform, the 20th-century legacy of immigrant farmers who made Concord home, and the challenges of the 21st century.
