Apply today for the Jeffrey P. Smith Farm Scholarship!

Want to send your kiddos to farm camp?

The Jeffrey P. Smith Farm Scholarship endeavors to connect young people with agriculture and the natural world around them. We hope to inspire the next generation of local farmers and local food supporters, by giving regional children an opportunity, through summer camp or membership to NOFA NH, to experience sustainable farming practices first-hand and watch their efforts bear fruit.

Deadline to apply is March 31, 2019

If you're interested in sending your child to farm camp this summer, apply today so we can help you supplement that cost!

These are separate events with their own fees. 

______________________________


It Takes a Village Steak Tip Dinner
Odd Fellows Hall
Saturday, April 13, 4-6:30-pm

Steak Tip Dinner with your choice of mashed potato or rice,
corn, salad and dessert.

$14.00 per adult $7.00 for children 12 and under

50/50 raffle

Paint Night III 
Odd Fellows Hall
Saturday, April 13, 7-10pm

Doors open at 6pm following the Steak Tip Dinner and the paint flies at 7pm. The last two night were a lot of fun and we hope to continue the trend! The number of seats will be limited to 28 for this night and tickets will be sold on a first come, first served basis. KO Cornhole has the tickets in hand and can accept paypal, credit cards, checks or cash. Pricing is $30 per seat. I can be reached here through PM or at 603-443-1117 (call or text). Due to the limited seating we cannot hold any tickets.

With spring fast approaching a painting of Cherry Blossoms seems appropriate! The featured 3 panel painting has a background meant to simulate an Asian feel of burnished foil. The Kanji letters on each pane translate into Live Laugh and Love. If you would prefer a different color, supplies will be available to do the silver/blue background. Both paintings use the same techniques. Although I have had a few comments stating this looked hard to do I can assure you it's not and we will use some different techniques to make it nice and easy.

If you have not been to a paint night before we provide ALL supplies and instruction. Just show up in some painting clothes and bring a beverage of your choice to sip on. Do try and make the potluck if you can....the main goal here is to have fun!

Silver/Blue option, different tree, no birds or Kanji

A bit of history
This town, a largely undisturbed agricultural community on the northern border of Cheshire County, is the prototype of a Yankee rural village.It was granted in 1753 under the name Addison, in honor of Joseph Addison, British essayist and poet, and Secretary of State for England, who signed the appointment papers making John Wentworth Lieutenant Governor of New Hampshire under the jurisdiction of Massachusetts in 1717.

Although there are persistent rumors that Marlow is named for the English poet, Christopher Marlowe, it seems more likely that, like many New England towns, Marlow is named after a place and the name "Marlow" recalls Marlowe, England. Perhaps some of our early settlers came from that region.

A New Hampshire source supports this view: New Hampshire: A History, Resources, Attractions, and Its People volume 1 by Hobart Pillsbury. He wrote, "It was re-granted in 1761 to William Noyes and others and named Marlow after an English town" (Pillsbury, p 234). Genealogical research on the origins of Marlow's settlers might shed light on the issue.
The picturesque village center, with its white church, Odd Fellows Hall, Town Hall and lily pond is one of the region's most photographed scenes and often the subject of an artist's brush. Marlow is the site of many marks of glacial action, and minerals are still found here. A woodworking industry once used the water power of the Ashuelot River to produce tools, furniture and wooden buckets from lumber cut nearby.
