Hello Friends of the Trillium Center and BLD farm!

This weekend is probably one of the most exciting weekends of the year for us, because it is the year we finish the Seed House. This has been a long project to create an educational space for the Trillium Center workshops and classes. Starting at 1 PM on Saturday through 6 PM on Sunday, we will be working on the Seed House and celebrating with potlucks and camping. You are welcome to come for the day, either day, or camp onsite. Send us a note at trilliumctr@gmail.com if you are planning on coming, especially if you are camping.
Some of the things that we’ll be doing:
  • plastering the inner walls over the straw bales
  • placing the final layer of cobb on the rocket stove bench

  • using cobb to reconstruct our sauna
  • tightening up the green house to get through the winter
Please consider joining us, bringing a dish or snack to share! We will provide some food and drink as well – if you let us know you are coming!
We also have some other exciting classes coming up. Check our schedule at: https://trilliumcenter.org/calendar/
You should know that we raised funds for this project on Indiegogo, received a donation from Shadybrook, Inc., and won a grant from the Pollination Project.
The Trillium Center is a sponsored project of Fractured Atlas, a non‐profit arts service organization. Fractured Atlas will receive grants for the charitable purposes of Trillium Center, provide oversight to ensure that grant funds are used in accordance with grant agreements, and provide reports as required by the grantor. Contributions for the charitable purposes of Trillium Center must be made payable to Fractured Atlas and are tax‐deductible to the extent permitted by law.
