RECENT EVENTS:

Fresh food for  Framingham,  March 29 at Grace Congregational Church

There was something for everyone, as approximately 40 experienced and new gardeners attended an open meeting to share ideas about how we can increase food production in Framingham among home gardeners.

Five working groups were formed from scores of proposals, some of which were:

growing free food on public land
support for novice gardeners
after school and summer gardens for elementary schools
bee keeping
seed library making seeds available to all
gardeners sharing harvest with those unable to garden
handicap accessible gardens in public places
permaculture education within the school system
no-till gardening
growing mushrooms
yard swapping
more rain barrel utilization
community garden with local ethnic produce

Last Month –   Transition Framingham held an Electricity Saving Fair at the library.
It was a great event with lots of folks leaving with new ideas for how to save electricity in their homes. Checkout out the great segment Access Framingham did about it!

Book group: Transition Companion
With a lot of “meat” to this book, we decided to do this book in sections. So if you missed the book group, don’t worry, you’ll have another chance. Keep your eyes open for another event and make sure to read the “Starting out” section soon.
