Blown Away

“Blown away”! And this time it wasn’t the wind. It was the refrain – sometimes punctuated with

Scrag Mountain Music for Farms Concert

tears, from folks attending the Music for Farms concert. Almost one quarter of the roughly 60 attendees were under 12. We are thrilled that farm members and friends Mary Bonhang and Evan Premo and their Scrag Mountain Music continue to utilize the barn to offer our community such intimate access to their splendid chamber music.

It made it all the more fun to have so many neighbors in attendance, along with folks from Barre, Chelsea, Norwalk (CT), Northfield and the outlier, our friend Don who is about to return to the re-opened US Embassy in Tripoli. Thanks to all for your generous contributions to Music for Farm’s flood response and our farm’s 2012 subsidized farm share program.

The farm supper enabled us all to linger in the glow of the music and company. Thanks to everyone who helped out and made it so fun!

Events promote such gusts of activity – at once energizing and exhausting! Mari’s Grammie, Gladys Burke, always advised to entertain in clusters… making better use of cleaning, decorating, etc. Honoring that wisdom we hosted some Boston-based tourists for the Teat to Table farm experience, an all-day Vermont Land Trust meeting and Lydia’s weekly yoga classes.




Mark your calendars for another rush of event the weekend of December 10th and 11th including the Floating Bridge Food and Farms Cooperative weekend-long Holiday Shop and an on-farm demonstration and book signing by Coooking Close to Home author Diane Imrie.
