Z Fest is also our premier fundraising event through venues such as food and locally homemade crafts and history and genealogy books in the gift shop. On June 29th, you can view the archival displays throughout the farm, tour the house and archival area, see the varied demonstrations, enjoy singing/music (acapella hymn singing with Virkler descendants, Friends of God, etc.), hear storytelling with the "Virkler" family, listen to conversations occurring about past barn raisings, and visiting with friends and acquaintances. Activities for children include butter making, bread making, popcorn, petting zoo, corn shelling, games, painting, using a hand pitcher pump, etc. One can also take advantage of the hiking and nature trail.

Registrants are requested to come to the first meeting bringing a brief sample of a favorite piece of writing by any author. Star Livingstone, writer, naturalist, and educator has enjoyed an eclectic career sharing the challenge and mystery of language through teaching, tutoring, editing, leading writing groups, and creating poetry workshops for both adults and children. She has directed the West Falmouth library summer science school, the Easton Day Camp in Massachusetts, and shared her tree stories with the combined Falmouth schools' Arbor Day assembly. Star has long been involved with the Old Forge Library Poetry Contest both as a poetry judge and as the leader, for several years, of the pre-contest adult workshop. Star finds inspiration from both the natural world and human nature and, personally, finds poetry the most useful way to express the experience of being. She is the author of Harley, an early reader book and true story. She practices the principles of permaculture and poetry on a two-acre homestead in Woodgate, New York. Weekly workshops will culminate in a public open mic where participants and others can share polished work. The Open Mic Night is scheduled for Wednesday August 7 at 6 pm.
