Olivia Rodham Memorial Library

Nelson Common, Nelson, NH

 
     Come to the Olivia Rodham Memorial Library for this workshop to learn how people in the 18th century made fencing for animals and gardens as a spring activity. Led by Kathy Schillemat,  participants will construct a wattle fence around a demonstration garden behind the library and learn the techniques needed to construct their own fence at home.  This is a collaborative program between the Nelson Agricultural Commission and the Historical Society of Cheshire County. Suggested tools: gloves, clippers and loppers. All fence building material will be supplied.
