Community Farm Advisory Board members met Tuesday night at town hall to discuss the upcoming Haunted Hayride scheduled for this Saturday. Volunteers are urgently needed for positions associated with the event. Community members at large are invited to help out here: https://signup.com/client/invitation2/secure/2010749/false#/invitation

In preparation for the upcoming hayride, a work party at the farm burned a large brush pile, distributed a pile of wood chips and worked in another huge donation of manure to the gardening acreage, compliments of David Dubin.

The soil will be tested again in the spring and compared to previous samplings to see how far the plantings of BuckWheat and Winter Rye along with the manure have improved the soil.

Work has begun on replacing the old tar paper on the farm barn. Replacement of pine ship lath boards cut from the property will replace the tar paper.
