Help us Rebuild the Barn!
We’re re-building the ell of the Guyette barn and we need your help!
Although the main Guyette barn found a new home elsewhere on our New England landscape, the original Guyette ell was dismantled and stored for us in hope
of a future raising.
Now’s the time to make the dream of raising the barn a reality but we need your help to rebuild it on its original site and with all of its former glory!
The frame is in great shape, and the current Wildlife Habitat Improvement project happening on the Guyette Farm will generate a local source of timber
to be used in the barn’s re-construction. Using wood means that trees are cut somewhere. In Massachusetts, we import 98% of our wood products, which
requires higher transportation energy costs and emissions. By using wood sourced from the Guyette Farm, FLT will greatly reduce the environmental footprint
of the ell.
Once reconstructed, the ell will serve as an event and workshop space for FLT, the Raspberry Hill Garden and the community.
