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.
