Go Green: Wakeman Town Farm plans celebration May 3

Photo by File Photo

Visitors to Wakeman Town Farm's "Green Day" open house on May 3 can sample a lot of the features at the town's agricultural education center, including visiting the resident livestock -- in this case, Petunia the goat, meeting Derek Amlicke last July.

Wakeman Town Farm will mark "Green Day" on Saturday afternoon, May 3, with free tours, agricultural demonstrations and activities for young children.

Between 1 and 4 p.m., the town-owned farm and education center will offer tours of its gardens and livestock areas, a hands-on demonstration of square-foot gardening and a homesteading workshop.

Also planned are sheep-shearing and wool-spinning demonstrations, plus a traditional May pole dance and a drum circle for children, the farem said in a news release.

The farm also will dedicate a new greenhouse and formally thank the Westport Woman's Club for its support of the farm.

Wakeman Town Farm is at 134 Cross Highway.
