If you’ve ever walked our trails to the lake, or enjoyed the Inn, you’ve probably noticed the distinctive shoreline bluffs. (You may have noticed the seawalls as well, built by workmen around 1900 at the behest of Farm founders William and Lila Webb. But that’s a story for another day.)
Mid-way through their year-long tenure at the Farm, we sat down with our post-graduate education fellows to hear about their experiences so far.
The day Brigit Strawbridge Howard realized she knew more about the French Revolution than the natural world around her, she began a journey to discover native trees, birds, wildflowers—and bees. Join her as she gives a charming and eloquent account of a return to noticing, rediscovering a perspective on the natural world that she’d lost for decades, and giving special care and attention to the plight of pollinators—honeybees, bumblebees, and solitary bees—and what we all can do to help them.
