Cranberries and the Cranberry Industry

Posted by SeekonkLibrary

Brian Wick joins us from the Cape Cod Cranberry Growers Association with a talk on Cranberries and the Cranberry industry. He will enlighten us on all there is to know about these little berries and how their industry developed and evolved in our great state. Where did they get their name? Why do they use water to pick them? And much, much more. Sponsored by the Friends of the Seekonk Library, this program is free and open to all.

Jim McGaw

A lifelong Portsmouth resident, Jim graduated from Portsmouth High School in 1982 and earned a journalism degree from the University of Rhode Island in 1986. He's worked two different stints at East Bay Newspapers, for a total of 18 years with the company so far. When not running all over town bringing you the news from Portsmouth, Jim listens to lots and lots and lots of music, watches obscure silent films from the '20s and usually has three books going at once. He also loves to cook crazy New Orleans dishes for his wife of 25 years, Michelle, and their two sons, Jake and Max.
