The annual Roadside Roundup in honor of Earth Day is this Saturday, rain or shine!

Use those blue bags you receive in the mail to clean up the roadside near your home.  These bags are provided courtesy of New Hampshire the Beautiful. This will only take a very small part of your day. All you have to do is clean up trash wherever it is needed along your own road. There will also be items that won't fit in the bags. If you can, bring them to the Recycling Center along with your blue bags by 4 pm. If you can’t, please leave them along the road in a pile. That's all there is to it. It's quick and easy, AND you can feel good about doing something to keep Greenfield clean and beautiful.

If you need extra blue bags, you may find them at the Recycling Center. It would be greatly appreciated, if you would bring your full blue bags plus any others you see, and any other items that are along the road, to the Recycling Center. The Conservation Commission will be collecting all the blue bags and any other debris at a special collection station right at the Recycling Center on April 26th. Look for a dumpster just for Roadside Round-Up trash.

Everyone is invited to a free Ham & Bean Supper at 5:30pm at the Meeting House. The Woman’s Club has again offered to help us by cooking and serving this hearty dinner. It is just our way of saying thank-you to all those who helped to make this Roadside Round-Up a success. To sweeten the pot, we will have some great free raffle prizes but you must be present to have a chance to win.

And again this year, you can look forward to the “All You Can Eat, (until it’s gone), Gutbusting Ice Cream Buffet.”

Lastly, we will be awarding cash prizes to the children who drop off the most bags at the Recycling Center, but you’ll need to attend the dinner to win.  We’ll also hold our annual free raffle after dinner for everyone who attends. This year, you’ll get extra raffle tickets for every blue bag you bring into the Recycling Center.

An exciting new venture in town!

Plowshare Farm is opening a store .  The store will be called Local Share and feature produces made either locally or at Plowshare Farm.
Our hope for the future is that this little enterprise can turn into a coffee house/store, which would be located in the larger space of the Meeting House (where the nail salon use to be).  We fantasize this becoming a local place to hang out, find out about (and post) local events, and a place for local producers to showcase their wares.
Starting with the coffee house is too much for us so we are starting with the smaller place next to Riverside Restaurant for the first year and only doing retail sales but no coffee or food service.  We intend to open on January 21 but do a Grand Opening on Saturday, January 31.  In a year we would like to increase our hours to 8:30am-12:30pm Tues-Sat but for now we will be open Wed. - Sat. 10:30am-1pm.
Our desire is to provide a service to our Greenfield friends and neighbors who make things for sale and to increase our presence/relationships within our little town.
We ask people who have something to sell to participate by setting up their own display, coming in weekly to do accounting of sales and by sharing the news about Local Share.  All sales will be 'by consignment' with Plowshare making a percentage of each sale (probably 20% but we are open to feedback).  Plowshare is sell organic granola and cookies, handmade bees wax candles and some felted items.  We hope 6-8 other local folks will have goods in the store.
Plowshare needs are to increase the richness of our relationship to our community, to be of service to our community and to not have this project be a cost burden.  Plowshare hopes to offer a service which becomes a long-term, direct support to local businesses and cottage industries.
Interested in finding out more?  Please contact Kimberly Dorn, Plowshare Director, at 547-2547
