Massaro Community Farm in Woodbridge to hold 'Celebrate Spring festival'

WOODBRIDGE -  Massaro Community Farm will "ring in spring" on May 11 with its Celebrate Spring festival, according to a release. 
"Celebrate Spring will feature a traditional Maypole dance, led by legendary dance caller Bill Fischer and the Wry Bred band," the release said.

The day’s events, which will run from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., rain or shine, will include flowers and hanging baskets for sale, sponsored by the Woodbridge Garden Club, the release said.   
Organic herb and vegetable seedlings will also be for sale, the release said.

At Celebrate Spring, the farm will be unveiling a newly completed section of its nature trail. A guided walk of the trail will help with bird identification; visitors are encouraged to bring binoculars. A workshop on the history of herbs, selection and their uses is also planned.
