Grow Massachusetts!

June 22, 2015

From the Massachusetts Department of Agricultural Resources Department (MDAR) June/July Farm and Market Report Commissioner’s Column by John Lebeaux, MDAR commissioner:

“May 15th was a particularly excellent day. It was ‘Plant Something Day,’ a program of the Massachusetts Flower Growers’ Association and the Massachusetts Nursery and Landscape Association. Secretary of Energy and Environmental Affairs Matt Beaton and I joined the students of the Hawlemont Regional School in Charlemont to plant a beautiful Flowering Crabapple tree. Hawlemont Regional School has its HAY (Hawlemont, Agriculture, and You) Program, a unique Pre-K to Grade 6 agricultural curriculum. We met with the students, families, faculty, staff and supporters of the school and recognized Hawlemont HAY teacher Jean Bruffee for receiving the 2015 Massachusetts AgriScience Excellence Award, sponsored by the Trustees of the Eastern States Exposition, in cooperation with Massachusetts Agriculture in the Classroom. Many thanks to Wancyzk Nursery of Hadley for donating the tree, and Snow & Sons of Greenfield for providing installation.”
