Due to the Stay at Home Advisory issued by Governor Baker, Village Earth Week 2020 has been cancelled. 

Seed, sow, celebrate! Join us throughout the week for a wide variety of talks, walks, workshops and activities related to nature, ecology, stewardship, and our climate. OSV interpreters will host talks exploring the deep connections between the environment and early 19th-century life.  Gardeners and farmers will begin their seasonal work of preparing and planting the fields, and special guest speakers will bring a modern perspective. All are encouraged to come and enjoy the historic landscape of Old Sturbridge Village! This week will feature a different theme each day, with topics ranging from “planting our gardens” to “insects and pollinators”. Special kid-friendly activities and tours on Earth Day (April 22), Chestnut tree talks for Arbor Day (April 24), and a day of learning about nonnative and invasive species on April 26 are featured.

Visitors meet one of the spring lambsApril School Vacation week is also a great time to meet some of our newest heritage breed animals – especially the spring lambs!

There will also be special military-themed programming on Patriots’ Day, April 20! Learn more here.
