COMMUNITY!

Friday, Aug. 15, 2014   Take a look at the photos below and you will see communities of many sorts – all coming together on a Friday morning in the summer at the Charlestown Land Trust Farmers’ Market.

Along with our community of vendors, as seen on this site throughout the summer, there is a community of volunteers!  Beginning with a smile and a greeting they help visitors with everything from parking to locating a particular item to providing fresh squeezed lemonade….
