Framingham Food Forest Fellowship

No one ever waters a forest. Why? Because a forest is a self-sustaining ecosystem. Our fellowship asks, “How can we use the same ecological principles to reduce maintenance in our own gardens and create abundance?” Join us to learn how! Our first demonstration permaculture food forest is going in at Open Spirit. Join us for the first work parties April 16th/17th, 2016 if you can.

Mass Local Food Coop

Mass Local Food Cooperative is a network of consumers, farmers, and artisans focused on providing fresh, local foods to those who seek them. Our customers buy products from local farmers and food producers by way of an online shopping cart, coupled with a distribution service. We have a distribution site right in Framingham at the Methodist Church at 360 Water St. On the first Friday of every month, people pick up their orders between 5 and 6:30pm and head home with local goodies. Signing up is easy!

Around Town

Community Garden at Methodist Church

First United Methodist Church, 360 Water St
You can have your own small plot, or help the community farm by sending an email to Diana (Dee) Palmer at jajeb1@hotmail.com or calling 508-904-0506. It has been requested that gardeners donate 10% of their produce to Daniel’s Table through the church.

Grounds Around Town

Participating businesses and organizations put aside used coffee grounds and make them available to the public.  People can then use this valuable nutrient for their gardens, yards and compost systems. For more information on how it works and how to be involved, see these attachments: Grounds Around Town, How does it work?, and What is so great about used coffee grounds?

Connecting people with stuff to people that want stuff, the only rule is: items posted or request must be FREE. Joining is fairly painless and the community is priceless :).
