Farm to Table Pot Luck
August 23, 2014 from 6 to 9 p.m.
Visit a local farm, farmers market or your
own garden in the morning, then bring something amazing
to share on Saturday night! This gathering is being
sponsored by the Stow Conservation Trust and hosted
by Applefield Farm to celebrate and support the farms
that keep Stow a special place.
Please register by emailing SCTagriculture@gmail.com.
Space is limited.
To help guarantee a variety of food, we are
asking people to bring dishes according to their
last names. Of course if you find something at the
farm that you want to use in a dish and it doesn’t
fit the list, feel free to bring what you wish.

Deer Ticks and Lyme Disease
Unfortunately, the deer tick population is increasing in our area of
Massachusetts, not only out in the woods (where they are very prevalent)
but also in our yards, golf courses, and orchards.
Not all deer ticks carry the Lyme disease bacteria, but some do. (They
need to pick up the bacteria from an infected host animal, typically
a white-footed mouse or chipmunk.) As a result, everyone in Stow, not just
hikers on our many, wonderful SCT trails,
needs to be informed about the hazards of deer ticks, how best to avoid
being "bitten," and what to do if you, a member of your family,
or your pet has been bitten.
