Join us for farm-fresh pizza and a celebration of Calabash Gardens, a regenerative agriculture saffron farm and wildcrafted apothecary in Wells River.

At nearly two acres, Claudel “Zaka” Chery and Jette Mandl-Abramson own and operate the largest saffron farm in Vermont. Calabash received a 2022 NOFA-VT Resilience Grant to convert an on-farm apartment into a processing center for saffron and value-added products, and free housing for employees as part of their commitment to environmental and social justice. RSVP and enjoy dinner baked in NOFA-VT's wood-fired pizza oven, followed by a farm tour. Gluten-free and dairy-free pizza available onsite upon request.

Baldwin Memorial and Groton Free Libraries will be onsite offering activities around the theme of pollinators, including a book reading and paper flower creation.
