Our Mission

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,
CLT Logo

Seasonal changes are coming and with greater daylight and warmth from the sun we╩╝ll 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 Charlestown╩╝s 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 products.

At a meeting of vendors in March, summer plans were discussed among our farmers and artisans.

Charlestown Land Trust Movie

The Charlestown Land Trust is in the process of producing a short movie. It will describe our purpose, projects and structure. It will also feature interviews with citizens of Charlestown who are concerned about open space and preserving it for future generations.

Below is a trailer of that film that gives you a sneak preview of what is to come. Enjoy!
