Spring Into Wakeman Town Farm

With the arrival of spring — hey, that’s what the calendar says — Wakeman Town Farm has organized a series of get-your-fingernails-dirty workshops on gardening and sustainable living.

On Saturdays (10 a.m.-noon) from now through September, Westporters can learn about every stage of the growing process — from seed to harvest — with the farmer-friendly folks at WTF (134 Cross Highway).  Resident farmer/teacher Mike Aitkenhead heads the program.

All programs are free, but with space limitations advance registration is required.
