As we get cooler, darker, windier and wetter our crops are going berzerka before and around growing frosts. There is a bounty at Snug Harbor Farm and at our neighbor farms of the most glorious flowers and vegetables. The season has inspired a line up of workshops and celebrations, like our swiftly approaching Haunted Barn, happening this Saturday and Sunday, the. This annual spectical is a favorite stop for ghouls and tricksters of all ages.
Utilizing our fresh crops for feasts and decorations, makes for long days of preparations. (Wait, that rhyme was unintentional…) We will be sharing observations and strategies in decoration and design that will help you make the most of bounty pulled from ours and neighboring fields. Our friend, Stephanie Pilk, will lead a workshop on November 15th that will teach how to create a centerpiece out of fresh material that is intended to dry in place.
The hunting and gathering shows no signs of letting up, after our Thanksgiving feasting, we will be introducing a very spirited and informed Wreath Workshop on 11/29/14 with Whitney, Nichole and Stephanie. More seasonal holiday inspirations will be explored in an afternoon workshop that will bring you loads of natural inspiration.
And to round out your inspirational quest for botanical knowledge: a very exciting and rare workshop is being offered by Tony Elliot, the founder of Snug Harbor Farm and extraordinary plant connoisseur, on December 13th about the care and feeding of the lovely lemon cypress he cultivates. In addition you can really celebrate the season and finish up any last minute gifts at our Fabulous Prelude Holiday Tasting Party, where we sample favorite recipes from cookbooks we love. You’re gonna love it, too! That will take place, as always, the first weekend in December: the 6th.
Then it’s 2015! We’re ready for it, thrilled by it and looking forward to bringing you more inspiration, transformation and new finds, new life and rebirth from here on Snug Harbor Farm.
