And now it’s time for this month’s Stewardship Saturday on October 22 from 10 am to 12 pm, brought to you by Weston Conservation and Weston Forest & Trail Association. This time the team will be focusing on Stone Wall Preservation and Beautification at the Concord Road Apple Orchard, as well as the so-called Potato Field across the street, and if time allows, the Green Power Field behind the Community Garden. Yes, all of those are Conservation properties owned by you, the Weston resident, and cared for with the help of you, too.

Volunteers will cut back vines and other vegetation and re-set stones on a selection of Weston’s beautiful stone walls. The group will start at the walls along Concord Road at the Apple Orchard and Potato Field, then head to Green Power Field behind the Community Gardens off Merriam Street. Park at the Orchard on Concord Road- the gate will be open. MAP
