The members of the Westminster, MA Chapter of the BFA, aka "Growing Great Food (and Flowers)", are hosting their planning meeting for 2019 on Sunday, February 10th from 2:30-4:30pm.

This is our fifth year of our ongoing programing and support for top quality plant production from the soil up. We have covered all sorts of content throughout the last four years, and taken on several projects. We have two demonstration beds at the library, and there may be an opportunity to work with the Children’s Librarian.

Are there other projects or pieces of information that you are looking for? Do you want to coordinate the mineral mixing party? Take on new projects? Ditch old projects?

It would be great if people would RSVP, but please show up even if you don’t RSVP ☺
And please let me know if you want to be included in 2019 but can’t make this meeting.
Hope you can join us!
