Pack a Picnic, Explore and Meander Along these Hidden Gems on the South Shore
1.  Weir River Farm and Whitney and Thayer woods, which is near Weir River Farm – Hingham and Cohasset.  I love this place because they offer an outside Story Hour for little kids every Wednesday June to September, 10 – 11 a.m.  After story time, wander through the trails off the farm and into Whitney and Thayer woods where you’ll find bridges over streams, carefully sited benches, a hermit’s shelter, and secluded holly grove. 
2.  World’s End in Hingham.  You’ll feel like you’re miles away from the “real world” at this unique destination featuring rolling hills, rocky shorelines, sweeping views of the Boston skyline and tree-lined carriage paths.
3.  Francis William Bird Park inWalpole has meandering pathways and artisan-built stone bridges at this family-friendly park of open fields, groves of trees, and frog ponds.
4.  Holly Hill Farm in Cohasset, a beautiful organic working farm.  Make sure you print out clues to the hidden Quest – South Shore Quests  – http://www.southshorequests.org – to help your kids explore the farm.  Questing is a summer “must do” with your kids.
5.  South Shore Natural Science Center and Hornstra Farms in Norwell.  Explore animals and trails and get ice cream after Hornstra Farms.

Celebrate Earth Day April 15 at Stop & Shop Hingham

Earth DayCelebrate Earth Day early!

Stop & Shop and Ben & Jerry’s are teaming up on April 15th from 11:00 am to 2 pm to raise awareness about climate change, focus on environment stewardship and encourage customers to be part of the solution by using reusable bags and reducing waste.

As part of the effort, you can celebrate the “First Taste of Summer” Ice Cream social at the Hingham Stop & Shop (400 Lincoln Street) on Wednesday, April 15th from 11 to 2 pm in the store’s parking lot.  Everyone is invited!

  • Hear Co-Founder Jerry Greenfield of Ben & Jerry’s live and in action discussing climate change
  • Enjoy a FREE SCOOP of favorite Ben & Jerry’s flavors from 11-2 pm along with a DJ and giveaways

For more than 40 years, Earth Day, April 22, has helped to mobilize the environmental movement and promote green policies at home and all over the world. As a responsible retailer, The Stop & Shop Supermarket Company LLC has a long track record of looking for ways to reduce their carbon footprint and help customers go green on Earth Day and every day.

“This event will raise awareness about the importance of taking small steps to protect the environment. An easy way to reduce the impact of too many plastic bags ending up in landfills and waterways is to encourage our customers to bring their reusable bags with them each time they shop,” said Jihad Rizkallah, Vice President of Responsible Retailing. “These bags are environmentally friendly, larger and fit more groceries than a traditional plastic grocery bag.”

“At Ben & Jerry’s we are asking people to get involved in the climate movement by joining Avaaz.org, a global web movement that brings people-powered politics to decision-making everywhere, and calling on world leaders to support a transition to 100% clean energy.” said Jerry Greenfield, co-founder of Ben & Jerry’s. “We are happy and proud to support Stop & Shop and their customers on their Earth Day efforts.”

Jerry Greenfield will speak at noon to customers and associates in the store parking lot. Shopper can enjoy music as DJ Lisa from WXKS-FM will be spinning tunes along with another DJ as well. Giveaways will be handed out and free Ben & Jerry’s ice cream scoops will be available.
