Join the Massachusetts Woodlands Institute (MWI) and the MA Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) at the Amherst Winter Farmer's Market on Saturday February 9th to learn about Western Mass Wood, a new initiative to promote the use of local wood in our region.
Western Mass Wood, www.westernmasswood.org, is a website designed to make it easier for designers, builders and homeowners to access local wood by connecting people seeking local wood to people sourcing local wood. The site has an online directory of local sawmills and kilns, stories of people using local wood in our region, and a marketplace where you can post wood you seek to buy or sell.
The Massachusetts Woodlands Institute (MWI) is a non-profit organization that encourages and assists landowners in responsibly managing their woodlands. MWI is a subsidiary of Franklin Land Trust.Register
