The countdown is over, Clacy Vogt is here! Read about our local bee keeper, how honey is produced, and the relationship between bees and our open Places!
I have posted another article about a farming family from a generation passed. This farm currently rests on Union, near the intersection with Morgan.
I am dedicating a page to research I conducted on an agrarian culture that can be no longer found today. These interviews are the voices of those who have worked the land in a open Chili, and have seen the loss of a familiar landscape. (For instance, did you know that sweet corn flourished in the land currently occupied by Wegmans?)
I have posted an article about Mr. George Hauslauer. I hope you find the time to appreciate his sentiments, and to share your own thoughts! This is a blog after all!
Read about Evergreen Stables, operated by Barbara Kiser and Jennifer Bailey! Open Places are not always field crops…
For those who are interested or concerned about Chili’s open places: There is a meeting this Thursday (the 19th) about the Open Space Inventory, a project that Chili and Bergmann Associates have been developing for the past year. Both parties have taken a closer look at our open spaces (agriculture, parkland, natural corridors, undeveloped areas), and they are presenting their research in great detail. The research will be used for a “Open Space Inventory Report”, a comprehensive evaluation that will be integrated into Chili’s 2030 Master Plan. Thus, this meeting will be fairly important in regards to the future of our open spaces.
This meeting is considered as a “working meeting”, a few steps down from a public referendum. However, there will be time for questions and comment.
Who? Town of Chili Conservation Board, Bergmann Associates
What? Working meeting discussing inventory
Where? Ireland meeting room, Chili Library
When? August 19th, 6:30 pm.
I just published an article about Tom Swain and his pumpkins!
If you have not read previous posts, I have completed a display at the Chili library about the active farmers in Chili. They do not include the detail that these articles present, but you will get a cursory look at most of our farmers.
There are more articles on the way!
Presently, I am crafting a display at the Chili Library dedicated to all of the active farms in town. I am combining pictures with succinct bits of information to catch the attention of library patrons. There are six posters up currently, and the rest will be up soon (the display case is located in the breezeway leading to the inside of the library). Let me know what you think!
