Herb Club with Melissa Laurita Kohl

Date: Thursday, June 8, 2017
Time: 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

The St Johnsbury Area Local Food Alliance's (St. J ALFA) mission is to strengthen our regional food system and increase food sustainability and security, so that all community members have access to affordable, healthy, locally produced food. St. J ALFA manages the St. Johnsbury Community Farm, an approximately 3 acre parcel of land resting between the Passumpsic River and the railroad tracks accessed from Old Center Road in St Johnsbury, Vermont. The Community Farm model cultivates the land as one large garden. Volunteers are the farmers and our community members benefit from all that is grown here either by taking food home in exchange for volunteer time or in deliveries to local meal sites and food shelves.



Herb Club with Melissa Laurita Kohl: No gardening or herbal experience necessary! Herb club is an informal club for children and adults who are curious about how to use herbs medicinally.  

5:30-6:30pm - Those of us who are available can come early to help water, weed, and plant in the garden

6:30-8pm - Enjoy wandering and nibbling through the garden as you learn how to identify herbs in the garden and how to use them medicinally.

St. Johnsbury Community Farm, Old Center Road, St. Johnsbury,

Woody Guthrie Dustbowl Balladeer

Date: Thursday, June 8, 2017
Time: 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Please join us at the Cobleigh Public Library as Mark Greenberg explores the always-rambling Guthrie's life and legacy through readings from his prolific prose writings, recorded and live examples of his music, and slides of Guthrie's own art and photographs documenting his complex life and times.



In his music and writing, Woody Guthrie chronicled the devastation of the 1930's dust storms and the Great Depression, championing the dispossessed and economic and social justice. Many of his songs ("This Land is Your Land") have become American classics, and he has influenced subsequent songwriters, including Bob Dylan and Bruce Springsteen.

Mark Greenberg is an educator, writer, musician, and media producer who has taught at Goddard College and the University of Vermont. This Vermont Humanities Council event is free and open to the public and accessible to those with disabilities as are all programs at the Cobleigh Public Library.

2017 Road Pitch – St Johnsbury @ Catamount Arts Center

Date: Friday, August 4, 2017
Time: 10:00 am - 11:30 am

Road Pitch is a statewide event and St. Johnsbury is one of ten host locations. A local committee was formed in April to encourage entrepreneurs to step forward and participate. Free business training with individual coaching was offered. For an emerging business or an existing business looking to grow, the training component provided a valuable opportunity to reach a business milestone. Polishing and refining a 5-7 minute presentation for Road Pitch is giving local entrepreneurs access to professional advice, networking, cash prizes and the possibility of capital investment.

Road Pitch was created in 2014 by Cairn Cross, co-founder of Fresh Tracks Capital. The annual event gathers a group of motorcyclists with expertise in investing, business consulting, and entrepreneurship for a week-long ride around Vermont to support existing small businesses and promising start-ups. There will be a final event in October at Champlain College for the winners from each of the ten host towns to compete for a grand prize and extensive mentoring from the Road Pitch Riders.



On August 4th @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am, four local entrepreneurs will “pitch” their creative ideas for an innovative product or unique business concept to an audience of business experts who will be riding into St. Johnsbury for Road Pitch 2017. The public is invited to observe the competition at Catamount Arts Center at 10:00 am. The four finalists seeking potential investors for their creative work are:
1.Jason Shafer, Northwind Weather Technologies
2.Donna & Roger Pion, Biochar Waste Management
3.Andrea Kane, Shamdanna, Eco Bandana
4.Regan Pride, The Freezer Butler.

Date: Sunday, October 8, 2017
Time: 4:00 pm

What is a "whip?": A whip is a maneuver performed on a bike, usually during supercross or motocross racing, in which the rider brings the rear of the bike abruptly around to either side. This is performed while the machine is airborne off a jump. In very extreme whips, the rear of the bike will end up perpendicular to the direction of travel, in addition to the bike being laid flat. The purpose of the whip is primarily threefold: To show off, to alter the trajectory of the bike in flight, and to scrub speed over jumps..  Where: on the Jester Bridge.



Celebrate the end of our downhill mountain biking season in style!

Circumburke Trail Run and Mountain Bike Challenge

Date: Saturday, October 14, 2017
Time: 7:00 am - 5:00 pm

Conservation Collaboratives and Kingdom Trails first organized the CircumBurke in 2009 to promote the idea of a bikeable route around Burke Mountain through Victory and to remember Dave Blumenthal, a Vermont adventure biker and trail advocate, who died in Colorado while competing in the Tour Divide.



The event has increased in popularity each year, as we add more quality singletrack to the route, making it more challenging yet more fun. Trail runners and bikers alike have embraced the event, because it is a great opportunity to race through a wild corner of the northeast kingdom primarily on singletrack. In 2014, 2015 and 2016, the CircumBurke was voted “Best Bicycle Race in Vermont” by Vermont Sports readers. Very few sections of dirt road or cart trail are used on the course. The trail runners and two lap “CircumBerzerk” bikers begin the challenge at 8:00 AM, in order to have completed most of the fast singletrack sections in Victory before the main wave of bikers comes through after a 10 AM start.

SCHEDULE: Saturday, October 14

A Christmas Carol

Presented by No Strings Marionette Company.  Audiences of all ages will enjoy this timeless story, told through the magical artistry of puppets! Eighteen large-scale marionettes whisk you through the Good Ole Streets of Charles Dickens' London. If the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future can awaken the forgotten love and joy within stingy Scrooge's heart, just think what the story can do to encourage the everlasting Spirit of Christmas in us all.



Puppeteers Dan Baginski and Barbara Paulson have toured the US together for over sixteen years. Their traveling stage transforms any space into an intimate theater, where the seamless blend of movement, music and masterful manipulation captivates young and old alike. With puppeteers in full view, the audience sees how the puppets are brought to life. These Vermont artisans lovingly hand craft the marionettes, props and scenery, whether for an original tale or an adaptation of a classic.

$4 each (buy tickets for all four shows for $10); Groups of 50 or more - $3.50; Plus 6% Vermont sales tax.  First show at 10:30 am and second show at 1pm.
