Back from a great trip to Holyoke

June 29, 2010

The latest trip to Holyoke to spend time the people of Nuestras Raices was amazing, as always.  The farm and gardens are looking beautiful and there are new people and new projects.  The Roots Up green job training program has graduated it’s third cohort and the graduates are already hard at work.  There was the Co-op Powers 6th Annual Sustainable Energy Summit on the farm where the grads got to show off their skills and meet other people and organizations in the area, as well as learn some new tricks. This was the perfect place for Nuestras Raices’ latest venture, Energia, to introduce itself to the community.

While I was there I stayed in a B&B in nearby Springfield, the Lathrop House, a beautiful old house across the street from Forest Park.  Diana Mara Henry, the owner, was an amazing host and made me feel very welcome and taken care of – Thank you Diana!  She has a great vegetable garden in the back yard and a few sneaky veg in the front.
