Spence Farm to Receive Orchard!

Thanks to all the dedicated Woburn voters, Spence Farm has been chosen to receive an orchard from Edy’s Fruit Bars Communities Take Root program.
 
The orchard will be built in an “underutilized, overgrown” area of the farm as part of an Eagle Scout orchard and butterfly garden, according to an Agricultural Committee statement on the Edy’s website, to help teach people how to care for, maintain and enjoy planting, harvesting  “and, in general, the fruits of their labor.”
