FARMINGTON – The Greater Franklin Food Council is excited to announce the first ever Snowshoe Frolic and Garden Fair fundraiser on Saturday, February 25! This interactive 5K snowshoe frolic will meander from the historical Whistle Stop Trail through Titcomb Mountain’s cross-country ski trails. After frolicking in the snow participants can walk over to the Farmington Grange for the Garden Fair, a cozy space to dream of your spring garden while enjoying hot chocolate and soup in the midst of winter. The fair features a seed starting talk with Nick Rowley from Cooperative Extension, local music by Sagittarius Rising, a garden raffle, seeds for sale, free seed catalogs, kids activities, local garden vendors, and more.
