Hand-made dragon candles that have a dragon figurine inside! When you burn a regular candle you are rewarded with the comforting yellow glow of a candle flame and the relaxing fragrance stored within the wax. But once the candle has burned, all that remains is a memory and a pool of melted wax. Not so with Hidden Dragon Candles! When you burn your dragon candle, a pewter dragon figurine will rise from the pool of wax. This is your Hidden Dragon – a permanent reminder of your candle

Acton-Boxborough Family Network (ABFN), based in Acton, Massachusetts, is a non-profit group of local parents working together to increase and improve local resources for families with young children.
The Acton-Boxborough area is a wonderful place to live, and ABFN is the best way for young families to connect and build a community here and in neighboring towns.
Through member volunteers, ABFN offers a variety of family programming (family outings, seasonal parties, parents’ nights out) and other resources (discounts, new baby meal trains, speaker events), to ensure we’re all in this together. Build your village as you connect with other families interested in making the most of our area.

Here at the farm, our product may be small, but our goals are big! We offer an entirely sustainable product which includes biodegradable packaging. Our microgreens are a nutrient dense super food packing superior taste and flavor and they’re also grown and harvested sustainably. All byproducts of the microgreens including soil, roots and seed are fed back to our free-range chickens who eat what they choose and turn the remainder into compost for our garden.
