Speaking of healthy transportation: please stop by the Rail Trail table at the Oct. 7 market. The Needham Rail Trail is working with the Bay Colony Rail Trail (www.baycolonyrailtrail.org) to convert miles of unused rail corridor into a shared use path. The planned shared use includes bicycling, jogging, strolling and more. The 2-mile Needham Rail Trail portion would run through the Needham Town Forest, past Red Wing Bay, to the Charles River Peninsula at the Dover line. Come and learn more!
