Join us for our Summer Solstice BBQ! This evening will showcase some amazing folk, bluegrass and old time tunes by Garrison's own Tall County and Newburgh's own The Miller Brothers. They'll set the vibe and we'll be serving up some incredible BBQ using responsibly sourced local meats and vegetables. The backyard will be set up with games, hula hoops, and water toys for the kiddos. Don't fret - there will be beer and wine specials for the adults!

Tall County is a Hudson Valley-based trio writing and playing stripped-down songs on strung-up instruments. The band just released its first full-length album, Featherweight, a collection of 14 original songs bristling with fiddle licks and harmony. It was recorded in 2015 in the Adirondacks by Beehive Productions. Tall County's 2013 release, an EP called Shine, blew everyone's minds.
Tall County is:
Liz B. Rauch: voice, fiddle, uke
Ned P. Rauch: voice, guitar, uke, mandolin, banjo, organ, harmonica
Colin DeHond: voice, bass, percussion, brass
The Miller Brothers are an old-time stringband from Newburgh, NY. Steeped in tradition, but never formalists they play American music for anyone who wants to hear it.
Green Teen Community Gardening
The Green Teen program empowers urban youth to be effective community change-agents by immersing them in the local food system. This youth development program teaches life and work skills through hands-on experiences in farming and gardening, health and nutrition, entrepreneurship, and leadership.
During the school year, Green Teen holds local programs both during and after school where participants grow plants and vegetables in their classrooms, on farms, and in community gardens.
In 2017, the Green Teen program provided Beacon teens with vocational training, education related to the food systems, and a wide range of life-enhancing opportunities.
Designed, planted and maintained 3 urban gardens;
Harvested, prepared and marketed ‘farm-to-table’ produce;
Helped develop the 21 Meals brochure with the Beacon Nutrition Advisory Committee. The brochure highlights where food assistance can be used to purchase fresh, healthy food, and identifies Beacon-based sources of free food;
Visited the Beatrix Farrand Garden for three lessons around landscaping and garden design, and participated in a documentary being filmed on Beatrix Farrand that should be out on PBS in 2018;
Engaged in yoga classes to learn about stress management and how exercise and yoga can help the central nervous system;
