Event Education Stations:
Kids Discovery Garden, Rock Painting Scavenger hunt & Animal Visits
Explore our educational raised bed garden and help us get it ready for this season. Search around for signs of spring, and meet our bunny family while saying hello to old friends. Help us harvest rocks from the field to ensure the survival of our farm equipment, and get creative with painting a rock to take home or decorate the farm!
Herb Garden Perennial Pollinator Project
Get your hands dirty and help us mulch the newly revamped herb and perennial pollinator garden at the front of the farm. We have saved some old plants and added new varieties to encourage pollinator visits and education, while beautifying our favorite spot on the farm. Thanks to W.P.P.A. for visiting to teach more about how you can help pollinators in your own backyard!
Forestry, Trails & Horticulture-
Swing by the table talking all things Trees! Our Forestry Manager will be onsite to explain how we at Land’s Sake help encourage the health of forests right here in Weston, by tree felling, cutting firewood & boiling our liquid gold maple syrup. Learn about the history of the trees on our farm which were planted decades ago by the Arnold Arboretum and Marion Case. T.A.G. will be here to discuss the important maintenance of trees and celebrate the new ones planted! Also connect with the W.F.T.A. to learn more about exploring all of the trails in Weston!
Hunger Relief Organizations & Local Support
A Group of Land Lovers started the whole thing over 50 years ago- Green Power was founded on the concept of bringing fresh food to struggling surrounding communities while teaching young kids a thing or two! Learn about the hunger relief organizations we work with today and how our work, supported by your generous funding, is making a difference! We will also have opportunities for people to sign up for volunteer work, and learn how to help more!
Canned Food drive for the Weston C.O.A. please bring your donations to our hunger relief table to be given to the Weston COA

Make your way to the site of our compost pile which we turn with our big green John Deer tractor! Meet our Farm Manager Brendan Murtha, who will be talking about all things farm, healthy soil, & how we are working to improve composting on the farm and throughout the community! Thanks to S.W.A.G. for joining us in the effort to spread the love of recycling, sustainability, and learn what you can do to help at home!
Farmstand & Local Artisans
Visit our farmstand to pick up some local goodies, and some new items special for Earth Day! As always, we will have our Local Raw Honey, and the freshest batch of maple syrup from this season! We will also be highlighting local artisans, so pick up some beautiful Earth Day keepsakes for your home. We are very excited for the farmstand to officially open on June 4th, and you can join us to celebrate that day too!
Capital Campaign & Land’s Sake Farm
Grow With Us! With the addition of permanent structures and utilities, the Grow with Us campaign will allow us to expand our growing season and education programs, increase our food production, give more produce to those in need, and better serve our community. This 40 acre masterplan focuses on increasing efficiency, reducing reliance on neighbors, and creating a more sustainable farming model with the goal of better serving the community. Learn how you can help and double the impact of your donation!
