Learn about the cost of chickadees (& other birds), why caterpillars rock, and why mature forests are crucial to the earth’s wellbeing. Prassede Calabi (PhD) will discuss what forests have to do with food pyramids, why we all need to eat our ‘brights’ and how to keep those chickadees going.
Come learn about the Win Fast Forest mission and how you can get involved!

Grow Local for the Planet, in collaboration with Wright-Locke Farm, is starting Winchester’s own “Miyawaki” or Fast Forest This involves transforming a bit of low habitat-value wetlands at Wright-Locke Farm into a high-value mature forest in 30 years rather than the typical 150 years.
Regenerative agriculture is a holistic approach to food and farming systems which focuses on restoring the soil as a means to reverse climate change. Rebuilding soil organic matter & soil biodiversity results in carbon sequestration, increased wildlife corridors, increased nutrient density in our food, improved water cycle and increased crop resilience.
