2019 Workshops & Events
August 14th, 2019 from 5-7:30pm: Come tour our farm, taste our teas, and enjoy some arepas!
Tour starts at 5:30pm! Enjoy a sensory tour of our fields of culinary, medicinal, and tea herbs! On the tour, you'll wind your way up the hillside (which features an amazing view of the village of Chelsea!) to tour the perennial and annual herb beds and learn about our ethos, growing practices, history, collaborations, and more.
After the tour, you'll head back down the hill for iced tea (free) and homemade arepas made using locally-grown organic corn (for purchase) from the Moon & Stars Food Cart. Moon and Stars Farm is a project that connects communities through the Arepa-making process while bringing native, heritage, open-pollinated corn back to the VT landscape.
$5.00 suggested donation per person. All ages welcome!

Foraging Basket Workshop with Penny Hewitt
Enjoy a day of basket weaving on our hillside herb farm!
In this 5-hour class lead by Penny Hewitt, you will weave a round basket, approximately 6”x 6,” with an optional strap.
This class also includes a discussion of how the ash for the baskets is harvested and processed.
This is a great class for ages 10 and up.
About the teacher, Penny Hewitt:
A craftsperson, teacher, homesteader, and homeschooling mom, Penny Hewitt lives with her family on a diversified farm in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont. Through the curiosity of her sons, she became fascinated with and then passionate about preserving and passing on traditional skills, particularly in the forms of black ash and birch bark basketry.
Working with responsibly harvested and hand-processed materials from the forest surrounding her home, Penny seeks to create objects of beauty that are useful in everyday life. She is inspired by traditions of other cultures, and grateful for the opportunities of connection to people, place, nature, and self that her craft cultivates. Her experience with weaving includes teaching workshops, leading homeschool groups and crafting for income.
