AUGUST, 2021



Late Summer Trail Maintenance will be taking place at Mobbs Farm on Saturday, August 28th. The focus for the three hour work session will include:

  • Trail clearance of debris
  • Bridge & boardwalk maintenance / repair
  • Mel’s trail clearance
  • Fitzsimonds Road parking lot fence repair
  • Other TBD projects
If you would like to join the fun, please meet at the Fitzsimonds Road parking lot at 9:00 AM for grouping. Kindly bring your mask in the event of working in close proximity to others. Thanks!

This spring, the Mobbs Farm Committee discussed Covid-19 and the associated food insecurity associated with the pandemic. This, combined with everyone’s desire to get outdoors for fresh air and exercise led the committee to establish an experimental garden plot, with the goal of finding out if the land adjacent to the Browns Trace parking lot would be suitable for gardening. A small, 20 x 20’ plot was established with donated plants and seeds. The results were better than expected and all food grown will be donated to food donation sites in the area. Anyone interested in establishing a community garden at Mobbs Farm? Let us know!

August has featured a ton of trail clearing at Mobbs. Downed trees have been a pretty common occurrence this summer and has kept members of the MFC busy clearing logs and debris from trails on both the Hillside and Meadow side of the property. Should you encounter a section of trail in need of clearance, please don’t hesitate to drop us an email at: mobbsfarm@jerichovt.gov

Interested in working on the Mobbs Farm Committee? We have received a number of inquiries about a vacancy on the committee. We will be sending out a questionnaire to those who have contacted us to fill the 9th seat, recently vacated by longtime committee member and former Chair, Mike Rocheleau. If you would like to be considered, please email us and we will send the questionnaire out, on or around the first of September. To express your interest, please email: mobbsfarm@jerichovt.gov Thanks!

    I support conserving Mobbs Farm, but I am opposed to hunting on it. How can that be accomplished?
