Walks and talks will be offered throughout the day along with a gallery of artists offering demonstrations and hands-on activities.
Following the “Letterboxing Trail” provided by Warren County Planning Department, the self-guided tree walk will bring you to a camp fire tended by owner, Gary Martin.

During the scheduled mushroom walks at 10:30, 12:30 and 2:30, there will be talks about all things “mushroomy”. Discover and identify mushrooms growing in their natural habitat, discuss the edibility and medicinal value and learn other facts about these amazing fungi as you walk through the woods. Walk among the plants and “weeds” the might be growing in your own backyard. Learn to identify and discover benefits of some you might normally discard from your cultivated gardens.
Meanwhile artisans will be set up in and around the barn with their art, demonstrations and hands-on activities. Handmade soaps, books, greeting cards, quilted items, pottery, lotions, jewelry, candles, wood art along with vintage items and displays will be on hand. In addition to the mushroom walks, Andy LeBlanc will be back with logs to inoculate with shiitake and lions mane mushroom spawn.
