Announcing Powisset Farm's 1st ever Monthly Book Group,  "FARM TO FABLE":

Itching to read and share books on planting, food chains, nutrition, and agriculture with your friendly farmers and fellow farm sharers?  All welcome to join us in unEARTHing the lost experience of using real ingredients in making a meal on Wednesday, May 27th7:00-9:00 for our kick-off meeting and book discussion of Michael Pollan's Cooked:  A Natural History of Transformation. 
For questions or future book suggestions, please contact Suzanne Greenwald or Anne Innis (

Kwilton Services is proud to be associated with the Trustees of Reservations
and the Powisset teams particularly. Xenia has known the farm and woods for
30 years having first come to Dover in 1985, Allan is a newcomer to the area
and country, having first visited the farm in 2007.

We make use of many of the reservations for walking with our dog and take
pleasure in showing visiting friends the work being done by the Trustees,
not just conservation, but education too, in various forms.

To help keep this work going forward, we are offering a mixed cord of red
and white oak and a little maple worth $300 last winter delivered to the
home of the winner of the raffle, but not stacked. The wood was cut about 16
months ago, so will be perfect for burning this coming winter. It is cut at
an average 16 inches long and split ready for use.

The price per number will be $5 or $20 for 5 numbers, all proceeds to the
Trustees of Reservations. We will be at the spring fest with the trailer
loaded, so all comers will be able to see what they are playing for.
