Pick your own sunflowers - TUESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY

Come tour the Farm Institute's one acre sunflower field! Pick your own sunflowers are available now through the September during normal business hours- Tuesday through Saturday 9am-4pm

Please check in inside the Farm's market to receive a bucket and a set of clippers. Sunflowers are $1/stem.

The first plot has a 5 foot wide walking path down the center.  The second plot has a small trail meandering thru it, and was not fully weeded.  It is a bit like a sunflower jungle out there, so please accompany your small child if they enter!  

Our Sunflower meadow was planted by Morning Glory Farm on June 28th.  The meadow is just under an acre and contains over 10,000 sunflowers!  There are 50 rows, each 200 feet long, in two separate plots, with a tractor path thru the middle.   

The meadow contains 3 varieties:  Firecracker (petals are red in the center and yellow on the outside),  Gold Rush (with a brown center and bright golden petals), and Rouge Royale (deep maroon), plus a mix called Sunflower Rainbow, which contains several different varieties;  some are branching, with many smaller flowers, and some have a large single flowerhead.

Living Music :: Martha's Vineyard
Daykah (Dean & Karin Rosenthal) perform a concert of music by living composers on Martha's Vineyard! The island of Martha's Vineyard has numerous classical music series, but composers of living culture are alive and well and are often omitted or given second billing. We seek to offer this living culture to the island by presenting a concert of musical works composed by noted living composers, some commissioned and to be premiered at the concert. Come join us at Sally Cohn's beautiful performance space in Edgartown! Daykah is Dean and Karin Rosenthal. A creative duo that has primarily focused on playing the music of living composers, they have performed around the Northeast, including performances in NYC at Spectrum as well as in Los Angeles at the Wulf. They have contributed work to an homage of George Brecht's Water Yam for the British arts organization Compost and Height and online text score collections. They have performed and recorded Dean's "Stones/Water/Time/Breath" in numerous locations. A recording of a joint effort of that piece will included on a forthcoming release on the label Edition Wandelweiser this fall. This concert is supported by the Martha's Vineyard Cultural Council. We thank them and Sally Cohn for allowing us to put to use her beautiful space for the purpose of contemporary musical arts.
