Inaugural Meeting of Friends of the Holliston Community Farm

by Bobby Blair
February 14, 2017

Do you have cabin fever yet? A new group in town may just have a remedy for you. Do you have an interest in animal husbandry, or a yearning to raise your own chickens? Ever wonder where carrot seeds come from? Maybe your curiousity wonders how to can vegetables or make grape jelly. The newly formed "Friends of the Farm" are looking for a few good farmers and gardeners to get their organization up and running. The small group has already applied for 501(c)(3) status and created a go-fund me site:  https://www.gofundme.com/friends-of-the-holliston-community

The Friends will be holding their 1st Annual Egg Hunt on Saturday April 8th. A week later the group will be selling daffodils which were planted at the farm last fall. The group hopes to draw up a set of by-laws, appoint temporary officers and come up with future fundraising events.

Everyone is invited to join the group on Wednesday eve at 7 pm on Feb. 15th at the Lutheran Church on Central Street. The Friends website can be viewed here: https://hollistoncommunityfarm.org/

I am sorry I am not going to be able to attend this meeting on Feb 15th I have a conflict with the planning board and the board of selectmen. I would love to be involved in this.
