Planting Time at the Community Farm

November 6, 2017

A green carpet of Winter Rye is emerging at the Community Farm on Rogers Road. The rye, when plowed under next spring, will add nitrogen to the soil. "This is the best I've seen it come along since we starting planting a cover crop" Farm Advisory Board member Dennis Serocki said to the HollistonReporter.com.

On tap early Saturday morning was the planting of 1,000 daffodil bulbs. The bulbs join 2,000 others planted last year and were a donation to the farm by the American Legion Downtown Marigold Project. Emerging daffodil flowers will be sold in the spring as a fundraiser for community farm projects.
