Special Event at the River Garden: SOS: Secret of the Seasons: A Climate Change “Co-Opera”

Special Event at the River Garden: SOS: Secret of the Seasons: A Climate Change “Co-Opera”

Climate Change “Co-opera” Friday, October 27th at the River Garden –  7:00-8:30 PM Strolling of the Heifers presents the original global climate change “co-opera,” SOS: Secret of the Seasons at the River Garden, 157 Main Street, Brattleboro. Based on songs written by SIT Professor John Ungerleider and Bill Conley, the SOS co-opera is a reflective, participatory musical journey that engages the audience with the external and internal challenges that global climate change is bringing to our lives.  Audience dialogue between thought provoking songs is designed to move participants from Fear and Denial to Hope and Action in response to the threat of global warming. The title song asks about the local impact of climate change:  “Will it still feel like my home, when the leaves don’t turn to red and gold, and the ice doesn’t cover the fishin’ hole?”  This special performance will conclude with a question and answer session with KC Golden, Senior Policy Advisor, Climate Solutions and Board Chair, 350.org. Sliding scale admission from $8 to $20 benefits Strolling of the Heifers’ year-round community initiatives. Tickets available  at the River Garden 9-5 M-F and Sat. 12-4....

Art show at BMH benefits Strolling of the Heifers!

  The halls of Brattleboro Memorial Hospital will be adorned with the colorful landscape paintings of local artist, Greg Moschetti. In his paintings, Moschetti creates places which have a sense of familiarity about them and draw the viewer into a feeling of peaceful solitude.  These are most often open landscapes with nearby water and distant views.  Many are set at day’s beginning or end when the light is waxing or waning.   The show is presented in collaboration with Strolling of the Heifers and will remain on view through the end of December. All of the works are for sale, and a portion of the proceeds will benefit the Strolling of the Heifers’ Farm-to-Table Culinary Apprenticeship program.   “Studies have shown that visual art helps reduce stress for patients and increases the overall satisfaction of care. This exhibit truly is a win-win for both our patients and local artists.” said Gina Pattison, Director of Development and Marketing at BMH, noting the benefits of hosting the exhibit.   For more information, or to purchase paintings, call Orly Munzing at 802-258-7070.   Founded in 1904, Brattleboro Memorial Hospital (BMH) is a licensed, 61-bed, not-for-profit community hospital located in southeastern Vermont, serving a rural population of about 55,000 people in 22 towns in Vermont, New Hampshire, and Massachusetts.
