At the CDP, we pride ourselves on the strength of our programs. Whether it’s housing or business, our programs are focused on creating opportunities for people to live here, work here and thrive here.
For many supporters, their first introduction to the organization is a workshop, or a story from a friend who has benefited from our programs. One supporter, drawn in by the strength of the CDP’s programs, is Michael Herman. Michael is a local farmer and member of the Orleans Select Board.
Michael’s family has deep ties to the Cape. His great grandfather moved to Orleans around the 1900s. He worked as chauffeur for the Winslow family from Boston whose summer home was on Pleasant Bay. Michael’s great grandfather settled close by, on Tar Kiln Road where the family started the farm that Michael operates a farm today.
