Plant & Sing is on hiatus for 2013, returning in 2014.

Plant & Sing! to Return in 2014

Dear Plant & Sing fans and participants,

This summer, Sylvester Manor is engaged in a major strategic planning effort to help us better serve our community. The Sylvester Manor board and staff have decided to put the Plant & Sing Festival on hiatus for 2013, returning in 2014, while we complete this important work.

Although our music festival is on hold, we invite you to Sylvester Manor on Columbus Day weekend for a traditional farm celebration. We are holding a community barn-raising beside the Windmill Field farmstand on October 12, a volunteer effort to expand our space for educational and community food programs — stay tuned for more information. We will also co-host with the Shelter Island Library and Peconic Land Trust a reading on Friday evening and a nature and poetry walk on Sunday morning of that weekend.

We look forward to celebrating with you on Columbus Day weekend and to welcoming you again to Plant & Sing in 2014!
