As you may know, the Town Council approved an agreement with Friends of Boulder Knoll allowing us to start farming on two acres — the area that has been regularly mowed between the barn and Bob Giddings’s house — at the Boulder Knoll property.
So, we can finally start doing something on the land!
We will keep you posted as the situation develops. Our next regular Board meeting will be June 26 at 7 pm at Fellis Jordan’s house, 72 Broadview. But, I am hoping that we will be having some work days out at the farm before that!
We will try to get moving on a farming project for this year. That would mean plowing, application of lime, compost, and other organic fertilizers, planting and mulching. Our first priority will be to get started on a small fraction of the available land – we had discussed a large garden of about 2000 sq. ft. along Boulder Road. Once that part is going well, we can move on to consider preparing another piece of land for use next year.
Start sharpening your tools!
Thanks for your help!
