Herald springtime by joining in on the traditional CHS Nursery Crawl. These legendary trips are meant to set the stage for a successful growing season!
This year, we’ll be crawling around the Merrimack Valley in the northeast corner of Massachusetts:
- The day begins at Wilson Farm in Lexington where it has been operating since 1884. Four generations of Wilson’s still work on the farm today, producing over 125 different varieties of fruit, vegetables, herbs & flowers. Their open air nursery has been described as “paradise in New England.”
- Next stop is Framingham where we’ll savor lunch at the famous, family-owned Ken’s Steak House. Lots of delicious choices here! Menu: Ken’s House Salad topped with your choice of grilled chicken, sirloin tips or salmon; OR French Dip sandwich with a side salad ; OR Fish & Chips.
- Final stop will be in Wayland at Russell’s Garden Center. Established in 1876 as a farm market, it remains a family owned and operated business. Inside, you’ll find many shops including garden, plant, gift & toy, flower, candle, bird, water gardening and seasonal Christmas. Russell’s prides itself as socially responsible and has been a leader in creating partnerships with people and organizations of all social and economic backgrounds.
