News and events for the Greater Worcester Land Trust
As often happens in summertime, I end up sitting in the shade staring up at the undersides of beautiful green leaves.
And, then I start thinking about GWLT and smile!
Perhaps some of these images will spark a memory.
Or give you an idea of what just might happen when you volunteer for a Trail Work Event.
There is just something about carrying logs with two-man timber carriers that never gets old. Tired, perhaps, but never old!
Those timbers are always put to good use!
Heading into the woods for trail work is pretty awesome! We are equipped with loppers, bow saws, clippers, and snacks – ready to work!
Volunteers move rocks!
And de-bark black locust logs!
And help build tent platforms!
And shelters for a composting toilet!
Of course, all that material has to be carried into the woods. And volunteers do that as well!
And that is why I smile when I think of GWLT!
UPDATE: The hay baler experienced technical difficulties, so the original times have been moved forward to 3:30 & 4:15 PM
4:15 PM at Donker Farm: Volunteers will help unload the hay bales into the barn. Parking for Donker Farm is at 44 Tory Fort Lane in Worcester, MA.
Join us this Saturday at Ralph’s Rock Diner at 8:00 PM to help raise money to save Donker Farm‘s fencing, feed the sheep, and offer more programs for the public!
One of our favorite volunteers, Jackie Lynn, caught some pictures of GWLT’s Farmfest celebration & Donker Farm on June 16. If you missed the fun this time around, don’t forget that Farmfest Rocks! is coming up on June 30th! We also have brand new sets of notecards with paintings by Elisabeth Donker.
Hikers & bikers meet the sheep at Donker Farm:
Join us this Saturday at Donker Farm to celebrate its 30th Anniversary with food, music, tours, and more!
Bring your pencils, pens, paints & easels. Bring sculpting tools or a notebook! Enjoy a beautiful day of creating outdoors on the grounds of the farm.
Snacks & beverages will be available all day, and lunch items will be served from Noon – 1:00 PM. Sides, desserts, and other potluck dishes welcome!
