From Woods to Home

October 15, 2016 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Celebrating the connections between woodland management, wildlife habitat and the local economy

Brian Donahue and Faith Rand, co-owners of the conserved Bascom Hollow Farm in Gill, will host a woods walk and a tour of their beautiful farm house built using lumber harvested from their own woods. Working with local foresters, harvesters and builders, the house is an extension of the “slow food” or local agricultural product movement.

The walk will feature discussion by the forestry professionals who made this local building project possible and will be followed by refreshments, discussion and a tour of the Bascom Hollow farm house.

To RSVP and to get directions email, or call (413) 625-9151

Sponsored by the Massachusetts Woodlands Institute, Franklin Land Trust and Bascom Hollow Farm, with support from the Gill and Montague Cultural Councils, Mount Grace Land Conservation Trust, and the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation.
