Waltham Farm Day

On a beautiful fall day, well over 200 people came to the Waltham Fields Community Farm to connect with Waltham’s agricultural past at the first “Waltham Farm Day.”  The September 26 event was co-sponsored by the Waltham Fields Community Farm, Healthy Waltham, the Mayor’s Office, and the Waltham Public Schools.  Young and old enjoyed apple cider pressing, digging for sweet potatoes, cleaning shallots and garlic, a composting demonstration, and an art project.  Presentations on cooking greens and drying herbs were some of the other activities enjoyed by attendees.

Here are some highlights of the day from the Waltham Community Access Channel:
