2016 “Backyard Farming” Lecture Set


As part of the continuing “Backyard Farming” education program, the Chichester Garden Club (CGC) and Chichester Agricultural Commission (AgCom) will present info-workshops “Starting Seeds” by Master Gardener Ann Lacroix on Wednesday, February 24, 2016, 7pm, Chichester Town Library, 161 Main Street.  


Master Gardener Ann Lacroix will talk about what to plant and when, seed and potting soil choices, various starter pots and trays, heat mats and lamps and the progression of caring for your seeds until it’s time for hardening off and transplanting your little gems into their new home gardens.


Master Gardener Ann Lacroix grew up surrounded by cow fields in the 1950’s in Connecticut.  Living on a dead end road boarding hundreds of acres, she grew up playing and enjoying the woods.  Ann’s parents were outdoor enthusiasts, always heading into the wilds to canoe, camp and fish.  The family had Springer spaniels used for hunting pheasant, woodcock and duck.  It was a wild time then; people today have a hard time finding remote places to enjoy nature and feel comfortable in the woods.  Long-time teacher and Speakers Bureau volunteer, Lacroix states, “I brought my students every opportunity I could to teach them appreciation for nature.  So it was natural to embrace organic gardening methods from my background.”


Both the Chichester Garden Club and AgCom promote gardening and farming through education have partnered to create this Backyard Farming series of info-workshops, a series with something for everyone - whether you are a first-timer, amateur or veteran gardener.  


To join the Garden Club, please contact [email protected] or Ann Davis 603-903-3891; meetings are held at 7pm, Town Library, the fourth Wednesday of the month, January through October.  The AgCom meets the third Wednesday of the month, 7pm, Town Library; all are welcome.



Letter To The Editor

Chichester Tax Payers: Part #1


A government (Federal, State and Local) which lays taxes on the people not required by urgent public necessity and sound public policy is not a protector of liberty, but an instrument of tyranny. It condemns the citizen to servitude. “President Calvin Coolidge”


 The main function of government is to protect the individual’s right of wealth, property, liberty, freedom and the pursuit of happiness and this pertains to local government and they are public servants not masters and we are a Constitutional Republic with individual rights, not a democracy where mob or factions rule over the minority and it seems our servants in the town and school have forgotten this or disregard this little fact as they look upon the taxpayers as a pool to loot and pillage from for their own self-serving whims. Have we forgotten our founding of America and the tyranny of taxation with no representation that our founding fathers fought back in 1776.


 If the Tax Payers of Chichester are sick of selectmen that tell us we are too ignorant to vote for the Road Agent even though we also vote for Selectmen and we have a school board member that says, the Taxpayers’ spoils  (wealth &property)are hers to spend as she feels fit because she won the election; The tax payers need to stand up to the gated school board and town meeting and vote in SB2 so all voters have a say on election day to the school and town budgets without fear of intimidation or a locked gate to limit public parking or even the union control and special interest control of the meetings and committees.


Mr. Carl Dow
