Get Your Ice On

We're caught in a seasonal 'tween' time again. Winter has almost relinquished its grip on us. But, dirty snow banks and drifts still cover our yards. The half melted mush makes it almost impossible to enjoy a walk on our favorite trail. In a few more week most of the snow will yield to warmer temperatures and early spring rains, firmly leaving the outdoors in mud season.

Community Supported Agriculture Comes to the Library

In the late 1960's Germany, Switzerland, and Japan, in response to food safety issues and the disappearance of agricultural land, started experimenting with different food distribution models. Cooperative partnerships between consumers and farmers were formed to develop ecologically sound farming methods along with socially responsible agricultural practices.

Twenty years later the concept started to take root in the United States, and the term Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) was coined by it's early domestic adopters at the Great Barrington MA CSA.

Tea time at the Hopkinton Public Library

"Tea is everywhere these days," says Library Director Rownak Hussain. "It's more popular than ever."

And because of that, Hussain invited her friend and Hopkinton resident Anando Chatterjee, owner of Signature Estates, to give a talk at the library about tea; the different types, how it's grown and how it's manufactured.

Chatterjee describes himself as a third-generation tea farmer, having been involved in the tea business since 1912.

"It flows it my genes," said Chatterjee.
