Solar Installation at Rec Center -Coast Guard Hill

The Marshfield Recreation Department has a new PV array that was installed in June at the Rec Dept's Coast Guard Hill location. This was part of a NSTAR pilot program the "Marshfield Energy Challenge" . It is capable of producing 250 kilowatt hours of electricity a month, approximately 25% of the building's electricity usage.

Marshfield Farmer's market is Open!

The Marshfield Farmer's Market opened last Friday June 5th with a steady stream of visitors despite the cold windy cold weather! We were pleased to see some new vendors including Acorn Canning, with wonderful jams and jellies and sauces, Jane Argyle designs, with lovely custom-made girls' sundresses, and others. I bought some delicious locally grown strawberries and am wondering how the supermarket kind even pass as fresh berries. There were tomato plants and other plants for sale for people still looking to start or add to their gardens. Looking forward to better weather next week and more produce as the season hopefully heats up!

Every friday afternoon, check it out!
