Waltham City Council Votes to Approve Purchase of UMass Field Station at WLT’s Urging

In the backdrop of a worldwide pandemic, after years of patience and uncertainty, one vote by Waltham City’s Council this week has made one thing certain: Waltham will continue to have a farm for generations to come.

After years of negotiations, the Waltham City Council voted unanimously—except for a recused vote—to approve the purchase of the land and buildings at 240 Beaver St., land once owned by Waltham benefactor Cornelia Warren.
