In February 2018, The Commons at Central Hall provided the Piscataquis County Soil and Water Conservation District with funds awarded to The Commons from the Quimby Family Foundation to make updates to the Law Farm, located on Lee Cemetery Rd in Dover-Foxcroft.

The PCSWCD assembled one of the new signs on Thursday, August, 2nd. Joint collaboration from the University of Maine’s acting director of Cooperative Forestry Research unit, Brian Roth, Foxcroft Academy’s science teachers Robert Weber and Brian Krause and The American Chestnut Foundation’s Maine chapter, Thomas Klak, 104 seedlings were planted on Wednesday, July 18th, 2017, which is overseen by the PCSWCD for the Chestnut Germplasm Conservation Orchard (GCO).
