CBF appreciates the many volunteers who support the mission of preserving the history of Hudson with time, talent and money. Some current opportunities for volunteers include writing about farm life, interviewing folks who knew the Case and Barlow families and helping with the inventory of interesting artifacts. Please contact the farm if you are interested in helping.

In honor of the British Queen Mother Victoria's 200th birthday May 24, 1919 make a Victorian posy. The Victorians backed their flowers with starched lace making a small bouquet called a posy. Each flower had it own message. Kathleen, M. Gips wrote a a complete dictionary of the meaning of the herbs and flowers, trees and shrubs used in the Victorian times in her book book "The Language of Flowers: a Book of Victorian Floral Sentiments". Gips writes "Verbal expression of ardor was discouraged in the proper Victorian cultures, so the silent floral language became an acceptable and often preferred way to express many sentiments including love, hate, jealousy, friendship, gratitude, happiness and grief".
