Charlestown’s Land Trust preserves and protects the distinctive character of our local area through acquisition and management of open space.
A Letter From our President
Dear Friend of the Charlestown Land Trust,
Seasonal changes are coming and with greater daylight and warmth from the sun
weʼll all be spending more time outdoors. We hope by taking the time to explore and
walk one of the many open spaces in town you will catch the passion that is the
Charlestown Land Trust. We are people working together to protect Charlestownʼs
distinct character and beauty. We welcome new neighbors as members
to assist in our partnerships and goals, to build a stronger Charlestown.
Looking to the summer, the Farmers' Market will re-open Fridays, starting at the
end of June. Our location will remain the same thanks to the Church of the Holy Spirit
at 4150 Old Post Road. This festive weekly event is the place to get your vegetables,
baked goods, meats, and join your community in celebrating open space and local
