***UPDATE***

 

It is hard to believe that we are down to raising the last $5,000 that Westford needs in order to protect the Jackson Farm and Forest!

With several important grants and generous Westford residents and friends, we are well underway toward meeting our $50,000 private fundraising goal that is part of the total of $630,000 to make this happen. 

It is not too late for you to make a difference by making a gift and being a part of this legacy that will always be part of our community. Visit https://www.vlt.org/initiatives/jackson-farm-forest-project and make a gift today. Thank you!
