Franklin County Fair Parade 2018

September 6, 2018

Our coverage of this year's event, with the theme "Bring the Whole Herd" and hosts Russ Brown and Tom Dillon, is now available for viewing online.

Time to Stock Up on Just Soup

Adapted from a Just Roots press release:

We may have broken records with high temperatures last week but now the weather reminds us that the long, chilling, months of a New England Winter are right around the corner.  The Greenfield Community Farm highly recommends you protect yourself from the upcoming frosts with their local soups!  Just Soup is available now, with limited quantities in stock.  Get it while it lasts because Just Roots won't be producing more until the spring.

Coming Up at Just Roots

The weather is turning but that doesn't mean there's nothing to do at the Greenfield Community Farm!  There are workshops and volunteer opportunities and even a fun party planned for this month.

September Events at Just Roots

Adapted from a Just Roots press release:

September will be a fun month at the Greenfield Community Farm!  In addition to enjoying the wonderful bounty of fresh produce, folks can march with Just Roots in the Franklin County Fair Parade or learn how to save seeds for their gardens next year.

What's Happening at Just Roots?

There's so much going on and not just in the fields!   While the folks behind the Greenfield Community Farm want you to know that it's not too late to get a farm share, they also want to spread the word about their new Local Food Clinic, which helps people fit healthy, local, food into any budget.  They also want to remind the public that there are opportunities to volunteer at the farm and take a variety of classes.
