MA/RI Westborough Community Land Trust Annual Meeting

June 12, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Brad Smith with chestnut tree
Did you know there is an American Chestnut tree breeding orchard in Westborough? Learn the fascinating story behind the work that is being done there.

Presenter Brad Smith joined the American Chestnut Foundation in the early 1990’s, upon spotting his first Chestnut in the wild after reading a National Geographic article about this new organization. He became a board member of the Massachusetts and Rhode Island Chapter soon after its founding in 2000; he is a past president and remains a director. He has been involved in surveying, pollinating, planting, harvesting and crossbreeding Chestnuts for the last two decades. Brad has recently retired from teaching Latin for 35 years, and has lived in Westborough since 1988.
