A celebration was held on October 6th, to mark the upcoming sale of 1.5 acres of property located on Pinevale St in the Indian Orchard neighborhood to Wellspring Harvest. The land was by the Springfield Redevelopment Authority and was in the Indian Orchard Industrial Park. Plans are underway to build a garden/greenhouse complex for vegetables that will be marketed and sold to area businesses and institutions. Mayor Domenic Sarno, along with SRA Chair Armando Feliciano and City Councilor Orlando Ramos, welcomed Wellspring to the neighborhood and wished them much success in their farming endeavors. This project will create new jobs for Indian Orchard residents and provide a source for fresh "green" produce for all of Springfield.
