Conservation Commission hosts Earth Day event

The Brookfield Conservation Commission recently hosted an Earth Day event at the Eriksen Farm Open Space on Nabby Road in Brookfield.

The event held April 23 featured the planting of a tree, birdhouse building, and information about the local Pollinator Pathway program. The commission also kicked off its “No Mow May” initiative encouraging residents to not mow a section of their yard throughout the entire month of May to provide a temporary habitat for pollinators before the summer flowers begin to grow.

The highlight of the event was a ceremony unveiling Brookfield’s first ever barn quilt. Barn quilts are large wooden boards painted in the style of a quilt and hung on local barns. They pay homage to a local area’s agrarian past and the actual quilts that are passed down throughout generations of farm families.

Bridget O’Hara, a local artist, and member of the Brookfield Arts Commission, created the design for the quilt, and then painted the two four- foot- by- eight- foot boards that became the actual quilt.
