Hike on Woods Without Gile Property
Saturday, 10/01/2016 (10:00 AM - 12:00 PM)


 








Join us for an October hike on this 470-acre property in Springfield. Owners, Marc and Ann Davis cleverly chose the name for their property based on the fact that their land is bordered on three sides at the eastern edge of the 6,725 protected acres of the John F. Gile Memorial State Forest off of Rt. 4A.  In addition to having wildlife habitat, open space and watershed protection value, the property also hosts the remains of five homesteads and one sugar house that represent a large portion of Fowlertown, a 19th century hill farm community. This is a rich and valued property to visit.


Directions to the property will be posted closer to October 1st.

Learn to Grow Garlic
Monday, 10/03/2016 (06:30 PM - 07:00 PM)

Come and listen to Naomi Scanlon of Two Sisters' Garlic at Clough Tavern Farm in Canterbury discuss how to plant and grow garlic.

 

October is the time to plant hard-neck garlic, which is usually harvested in the month of July. However, hard-neck garlic produces garlic scapes in June, which can be turned into a wonderful pesto or chopped up and used in your soups, marinades, roasts, and everyday recipes. Once the scapes are cut, all of the plant energy goes into growing the bulbs underground.

 

Come learn how easy it is to grow garlic and get your questions answered by Naomi at the Boscawen Municipal Complex (4th floor).
