Farm Advisory Gearing Up for Spring

by Bobby Blair
February 18, 2019

Community Farm Advisory Board members met Thursday night and firmed up plans with the Friends of the Community Farm for a fundraiser on March 16th. The St. Patrick's Breakfast will be co-sponsored by Holliston in Bloom. The event will be held at 10 am at the Senior Center. Tickets are available at the Town Clerk's Office. Also upcoming on April 7th will be the farm's 3rd Annual Easter Egg Hunt. Details to follow when the event is closer at hand.

The Advisory Board is also partnering with the town's Parks & Rec Department to host a six week (bi-weekly) course for youngsters, age 7-14, called Learn to Grow & Grow to Learn. Those wishing to sign up can do so here: https://www.townofholliston.us/sites/hollistonma/files/uploads/spring_summer_2019_v6.pdf

It was announced that a long awaited sewage system for the house on the property is now 90% complete, thanks to this past week's efforts of Rodenhiser Excavating. Previously an old cesspool was located in the property's front yard. Plans are being made for more parking at the farm and present sketches show room for 85 vehicles. Plans were also announced for a pilot program to house small animals at the farm.

It's open season for renting a space at the farms fenced in garden plot. The $50 seasonal fee includes water and a 10' X 10' spot. Contact PJ Kilkelly if you don't have enough sun in your yard to grow a decent tomato at 508-328-0210
