SATURDAYJULY 21, 2018ASHFIELD, MA
Horse-Powered Farming
— Horse-Powered Farming in the Hilltowns at Sawyer Farm
Join Hilltown Land Trust at Sawyer Farm in Worthington to learn how and why this family farm uses horses instead of tractors to plow and work their fields, and how they came to choose sustainable, organic farming practices to produce vegetables and meat for the local community. The event will include a talk by the farmers with a Q&A, a visit to the farmstand, and a demonstration of the horses in action! This event is suitable for adults and children ages 5 and older.

Sawyer Farm is an organic, horse-powered, family farm in Worthington. Established in 2010 by Lincoln Fishman and Hilary Costa, Sawyer Farm grows produce and raises animals in a sustainable, eco-friendly manner. Their farm store is open daily, all year long, selling produce, meat, cheese, honey, art, and other products from their farm and other local farms.

Sliding-scale suggested donation: $5-20 (proceeds from this event will be split between Hilltown Land Trust and Sawyer Farm).

WEDNESDAY — JULY 25, 2018 — BOSTON, MA
BackBayFrontBut
Stop Back Bay Pipeline Vigil. The City of Boston has allowed National Grid to construct its Back Bay Billionaires’ Pipeline, ignoring the winter moratorium, ignoring the unanimous City Council resolution that no decision be made without a robust public conversation, and in spite of the fact that the Attorney General has recommended that the DPU reject the sweetheart financing arrangement. We will bear witness, and make known our opposition to this terrible project that will poison our city, and our planet. Fracked gas is not a “bridge” fuel. We call on our Mayor and elected officials to initiate a moratorium on fossil fuel expansion – stop this madness. Join us for lunch hour, every Wednesday; bring signs, make your voice heard.
