Join Us to celebrate a "Day in the Dirt" and kick-off the growing season on the Community Farm! We will focus our Day in the Dirt activities in our Education Garden where we will prep raised garden beds for future planting, wood chip aisles, add compost, plant seeds, mulch, and divide perennials. The Education Garden space will be used by area elementary school students and our very own Danby Mountain Day Camp campers. Let's get this space ready for all the growing and learning that will happen here with our local area youth! Tools and directions will be provided. We have some garden gloves to share and will have a cooler with water. There will be signs from the parking lot to direct you to the Education Garden space. Parking will be in the lot closer to the two white buildings at 426 Danby Mountain Road. The community seed box will be filled with seeds to take for your home gardens. Bring seeds to share and swap! We will set up a table with envelopes and markers to allow folks to take just a few seeds instead of full packets. "Day in the Dirt" is a statewide event coordinated by the incredible folks at Vermont Community....
Join us on Saturday, April 27th at 6:00 p.m. as James Lasdun reads and discusses his book Afternoon of a Faun. When an old flame accuses him of sexual assault, journalist Marco Rosedale is brought rapidly and inexorably to the brink of ruin. His reputation and livelihood at stake, Marco confides in a close friend, who finds himself caught between the obligations of friendship and an urgent desire to uncover the truth. "Afternoon of a Faun is a brilliantly imagined, devastatingly insightful and powerfully rendered novel of sexual exploitation and betrayal. Like all of James Lasdun's work, it is meticulously written and intelligent, both a novel of ideas and a cautionary tale for the #MeToo era. Its ending is bitterly ironic, or perhaps just darkly funny, depending upon one's perspective-and Afternoon of a Faun is about the very drama of 'perspective.'"-Joyce Carol Oates, author of American Martyr James Lasdun is the author of Afternoon of a Faun, The Fall Guy, The Horned Man, and Seven Lies, several poetry and short story collections, and a memoir. The recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship, he teaches creative writing at The New School and lives in upstate New York.
