june 29 | american stonecraft visits the hill


In late May High Mowing was visited by American Stonecraft, a Lowell, MA-based company that collects rocks from farms and makes them into food slabs, coasters, and small bowls out of the rocks. Gerald, the company's founder, joined HMS students during their Horticulture class with Brad Miller and told them about his work before collecting stones from High Mowing land. On the American Stonecraft website there is a page for each of the farms with which they work. Check out their page about High Mowing to read more about their visit and to see more pictures.

HMS alumna Julia BALIT '09 couldn't be at the Friday night benefit concert in memory of Abby YANDELL '10, but that didn't stop her from contributing. In lieu of performing live, Julia submitted a track online in memory of her friend Abby. Julia, a graduate of Berklee College of Music in Boston, is currently in Taipei, Taiwan with her band.
