But we also know that the Celery Farm is not just the result of recent efforts like our clean-up earlier this month, or Marsh Warden Mike Limatola's constant vigilance, or the work of those amazing volunteers who have been working on the streams.
So on this Earth Day, I'd like to thank everyone over the years who has made the CF what it is.
Above is a digital copy of an article in the Town Journal from 25 years ago -- May 2, 1985 -- about the Celery Farm, courtesy of Lillian and Stiles Thomas. It's from the days when the Warden's Watch was more like a lifeguard stand and the Pirie Platform was still being built. (You can enalrge the photo by clicking on it)
To everyone who has made the Celery Farm what it is, a hearty thank you and Happy Earth Day!
