Projects


We are working on several community based projects that are open to the public. 
If you are interested in getting involved with any of these ongoing projects, please go to the Contact Us page. Let us know how you would like to be involved.

 Apple and Berry Restoration - Upon entering the north entrance of the Garden, you will notice the row of mature high bush blueberries and the rows of raspberries that were planted long ago by the Guyette family. In attempts to restore their vitality, we are continuing to prune, weed, fertilize, and create paths for better accessibility. In 2015 we will begin a pruning project on the old field apple trees.  Edible Forest Garden - In 2015 we created the Edible Forest Garden. It is a terraced public permaculture garden along a path at the Guyette Farm. Work is continuing on this project this season.
Seed Saving - In collaboration with the Hilltown Seed Saving Network , one of our garden plots is reserved for growing our seed varieties, including Harry Guyette's squash, and for seed saving demonstration and education. 
 
 Food Donations Gardeners set aside areas of their gardens to grow and share the abundance of their harvest with regular group donations to the local food pantry and to senior citizens in our local towns.

  School Connections - We welcome groups to contact us about our garden projects, workshop offerings, organic gardening tips, or on-site visits.  Garden improvements - In 2013, we completed a spring fed water system and installed a fence around the garden. In 2014, a pollinator garden was planted along the perimeter. This year we will renovate a small tool shed for garden storage, build a composting "loo", and continue to expand the garden area with new fencing. Look for the public workshops on our calendar to help with these projects.
