Tidmarsh Farms, a 577 acre private farm situated in historic Plymouth, Massachusetts, combines a large wetlands restoration and conservation project with an operating cranberry bog, a stewardship and technology program and limited low-impact residential living. Beginning in 2010, the restoration project will transform 250 acres of the property from a cranberry farm into a more natural wetland system, allowing this area to serve its ancient function as a flood plain and insuring free passage of water and wildlife from the headwaters of Beaver Dam Brook to the sea. As the restoration progresses, a Living Observatory component will afford the public access to the environment across 3 venues: the outdoor parkland, a Visitor center, and a dynamic website. Our goal is to equip each visitor with tools to better understand relationships between ecological processes, human lifestyle choices and climate change adaptation.

This Week on the Farm

May 2014

  1. Join us for an informational meeting on May 12, 2014 at 6:30 PM at the John Alden Club, 16 Minuteman La. Plymouth, MA.
  2. 2 silt fences have been installed in the two large sand pits. These fences are to keep the Eastern Box turtle from descending into areas we will be using as staging areas for construction.
  3. A small greenhouse near the main barn will be assembled to allow us to grow Atlantic White cedar and other plants for the restoration effort.
