Music & Art in the Emerson Brook Forest Open House

Join The Sustainability Project on Sunday, September 27th from 10am – 2pm for its Annual “Music an Art in the Forest” Open House Celebration at the Emerson Brook Forest Center, 57 Emerson Brook Drive, in Gilsum. This year’s event features a Solar Sisters noon-time concert, tours of the center’s trails which feature wheelchair accessible edible forest gardens, and an exhibition of sculptures by the late Susan O’Hara (Pablo’s mom). Throughout the day, a lively group of volunteers will be on hand to share their love and passion for the natural world and lead pandemic safe activities. Learn about the 13 core routines for connecting with nature, common across indigenous cultures worldwide, and permaculture principles for living in concert with nature. There will be a tour of the nearby Piedmont-Fleischmann off-grid solar powered homestead. As a safety precaution, food will not be served this year, but families and pods are encouraged to bring their own snacks or a picnic lunch. Please bring a mask.

If you would like to volunteer, please join us from 8-10 am Sunday morning. We will be setting up displays and producing a short video of the Center to share with people who are unable to attend in person. Please call Valerie for more information – 603-209-7272.

While there is no admission fee, donations to support The Sustainability Project’s endeavors are gratefully accepted. The Sustainability Project, a 501(c)3 nonprofit educational organization, promotes a love of nature, environmental stewardship, caring communities and ways of living that deepen our understanding of the interconnected web of life.
