7/12/2015 Food Forest Tour Set

WELLESLEY ISLAND, NY --  The Local Living Venture and Cross Island Farms are coordinating a special Summer event, the "Magical Mystery Tour: A Guided Walk Through a Developing Edible Forest Garden" on Wellesley Island, near Alexandria Bay, NY on Sunday, July 12 from 12 noon to 2 p.m.

The itinerary includes sharing information about edible trees, bushes and perennial plants. 
Host Dani Baker will describe the process of planning and planting over 200 varieties of edible perennial plants in an accessible arrangement that is both pleasing to the eye and to the palate.  

Dani Baker is a former psychologist, but she retired in 2006 to operate a diversified organic farm with partner David Belding.  Over the next few years they gradually added heritage breed pastured pigs, chickens, meat goats, beef cattle, ducks and turkeys.  Their farm has a small wind turbine and solar array to supply the farms' electric power, and they offer farmer-guided educational organic farm tours and on-farm primitive camping.  

This guided educational tour with the Local Living Venture is an opportunity to learn about the seven permaculture layers that they have incorporated in their edible food forest, always with an eye to 
building excellent soil composition and minimizing labor and other inputs.


Permaculture is an agricultural method that incorporates human needs with respect for natural systems in such a way that it creates highly efficient and self-sustaining ecosystems.  This means less work for the gardener, since weeds are given less than optimal conditions to grow in, for one example, or considered for their food value as another example.  

Edible forest gardens are a form of permaculture that mimics the structure and function of natural forests, while producing food and other useful products.  Participants will get a glimpse into the planning and design of a low maintenance food-producing landscape and explore using fruit, nuts and perennial vegetables in a food forest setting where permaculture principles, such as plant pairings for regenerative growth and ease of care, are highlighted.

Participants can also pick and taste in-season edibles and will go home with a potted perennial plant to begin or add to their own edible gardenscape.

There is a suggested donation for this unique event of $17 per adult or $10 for students, and carpooling options are available through Ridebuzz.org.  Following and separate from the Local Living Venture coordinated edible food forest tour is an optional Farm Tour, at a nominal cost, independently presented by proprietors Dani Baker and David Belding. 

To sign up, contact LocalLivingVenture@gmail.com or call (315) 347-4223 with phone number(s), email address, and the number in the party to receive an email confirmation. Other events can be found on the Full Events Calendar at www.LocalLivingVenture.org

7/19/2015 Norwood Village Green's 42 Annual Concert Series: BEARTRACKS

Tom Venne, Julie Venne Hogan, Scott Hopkins and Harry Ralph are “Beartracks”. The main focus of the group is the sibling vocal harmony of Tom and Julie. Although not a traditionally structured bluegrass group, the trio gained acceptance and a solid fan base at festivals throughout the Eastern US and in Canada from Calgary to PEI. Scott Hopkins, an experienced bluegrass musician, joined the group in the summer of 2012, bringing a driving banjo style and, at times, adding a third part harmony to the group. The addition of the banjo brought a much more traditional bluegrass sound to Beartracks, although you will still hear some Hank and Merle in their sets. In late July 2013, the perfect fourth bear was located at a festival in Danby, VT. Harry Ralph, an extraordinary fiddle player, decided to accept the offer to become a permanent member of Beartracks. Harry also adds a great third part harmony to the group.
