Discovering New England Stone Walls
Kevin Gardner, author of “The Granite Kiss”, will discuss his much-anticipated topic Discovering New England Stone Walls. Kevin will cover some main points from his book such as the history, stylistic development, and technique of stone walls. He’ll explain how New England came to acquire its thousands of miles of stone walls, how their styles have emerged and changed over time, and their significance to the famous New England landscape. While giving this informal talk, Kevin builds a miniature wall or walls on a tabletop using tiny stones from a five-gallon bucket. There will also be a generous question-and-answer period where listeners are encouraged to bring up specific problems or projects on their own properties.

Learn How to Grow Garlic
"If you can smell garlic, everything is alright" J.G. Ballard
Margaret Witham and Rebecca Hennessy, co-owners of Backyard Garlic, started their business to be part of the food business but with a twist. The main goal was to be part of their community while promoting human health and soil sustainability without the use of synthetic chemicals. Backyard Garlic grows 7-10 types of garlic which are blended through a slow dehydration process for use in their grinders and refill packages. These blends bring intense flavors and convenience right to the consumer's table to enjoy!
Come join us when Margaret talks about how to grow garlic and tell us a little more about Backyard Garlic.
