Warrant Article 13: 220-91!

This year more than 300 people attended Wilton Town Hall Meeting. Many of the warrant articles were routine: capital improvements, repairs to town buildings, and approval for highway maintenance. The warrant articles were presented, a representative would speak about its merits, and then the Wilton residents would vote. Each item took 10 minutes, tops.

Warrant Article 13—to appropriate up to $80,000 from the Town of Wilton towards the purchase of the conservation easements on 155 acres of land on top of Abbott Hill—took far longer. Joe Broyles, a Wilton resident and member of the Wilton …

Chanukah Happenings

Students enjoy latkes and play the dreidel game in the dormsby Liva Jostad-Laswell

As part of this year’s holiday festivities at High Mowing we have been observing Chanukah, the Jewish festival of lights. This year, Chanukah began the night before Thanksgiving—the first Chanukah-Thanksgiving overlap in nearly 100 years, and the last we will see for about another 70 years. Luckily, Chanukah’s timing still offered us four nights for celebration here at HMS.

On Wednesday evening, the eighth and last night of Chanukah, Judy Wachler and I cooked up about 75 latkes and hosted a large group of both boarding and day students in my home. The latkes, a potato …

Residential Life with Liva

by Liva Jostad-Laswell

Liva Jostad-Laswell, HMS Residential Life InternLiva is one of three Residential Life Interns at High Mowing this year. Liva’s sister, Ariana, graduated from High Mowing in 2003, and their stepsister, Rachel Miller, graduated in 1993.

Some nights are quiet, and I can do my knitting, chat with a colleague, and correct papers for the seniors I am mentoring. As girls begin to return from the library, I can hear giggling upstairs and footsteps running …

Abbot Hill Agriculture - Vital and Growing

Tomatoes from the High Mowing School farm

There is a rich history of biodynamic and community supported agriculture on Abbot Hill — a tradition that is driving High Mowing’s efforts to raise funds to purchase and conserve Frye Field. We spoke with Lincoln Geiger, co-founder of the Temple-Wilton Community Farm and dear friend of High Mowing, about the history of the Temple-Wilton Community Farm (the oldest continually-running CSA in America) and how the acquisition and conservation of 90+ acres of pristine wilderness will add to the vitality of Abbot Hill.

How did your story in Wilton start? When did you come to the area and why?
