Artefact Home|Garden carries a carefully selected range of products from garden accessories to interior decorations to kitchen wares like this rustic palette of wood and silver.

Even though we are busily working on our September/October renovations issue (on stands the first week of September), we might be tempted to escape the office and head to Artefact Home|Garden in Belmont, Massachusetts, for a day of shopping to benefit Waltham Fields Community Farm.

On Wednesday August 15, 10 percent of all sales will be donated to the farm, which hopes to distribute $50,000 worth of farm fresh produce to emergency food programs as well as continue its farm-to-school program, and farmer training and food education workshops for children and adults. In addition, Artefact is offering 15 percent off garden and home accessories such as the whimsical IMIMIdesigns pillows Design New England chose for May/June 2012 Local Wares, and 10 percent discounts on lighting and furniture. But we won’t be done shopping until we grab some farm fresh produce at Waltham Fields’ pop-up farm stand, which will be on the premises from 3-6 p.m. Corn on the cob, anyone?

Artefact Home|Garden
1000 Pleasant Street, Belmont, MA; 10 a.m. – 6 p.m.
