The Sawyerville Community Garden specializes in the best sense of having dirty hands - getting up close and personal with gardening. That's what 55 students from the Sawyerville Elementary School did on June 22 at said garden. They investigated fruit trees, squash plants and vegetables. They got their hands dirty planting various kinds of flowers.
The seed-saving club called COSMOS has taken over two beds in the Sawyerville Community Garden, says Chantal Bolduc, the Garden's president. Their second-year onions, beets and carrots will be going to seed this year - and that's not pejorative, either. The dozen members of COSMOS are learning how to harvest their own vegetable seeds, mentored by seed-saver Brian Creelman.

Planning ahead, as good gardeners do, the Sawyerville Community Garden is preparing now to open a market in Sawyerville next summer. Interested? Come to a rendezvous this Thursday, July 9, at 7 p.m. at the "Parc du Barrage" in Sawyerville, and give your contact information to Chantal Bolduc at

Old Fashioned Day at the Eaton Corner Museum is planned for Sunday, August 9. This annual event offers demonstrations and displays of heritage crafts and skills. "Our area has a rich cultural heritage, and the Museum encourages an interest in the skills that used to be passed on from generation to generation, but are now sadly disappearing. Old Fashioned Day gives visitors an opportunity to watch how to do things that our great-grandparents used to do, such as quilting, wool spinning, weaving, needlepoint, chicken scratch embroidery, blacksmithing, timber frame construction, knife-making, wood-carving, basket-making, and much more," said Jackie Hyman of the Museum's board of directors. "We hope to have exhibits of many kinds of antique tools and machinery, and demonstrations of sustainable gardening techniques, horse and wagon rides, and other surprises."
