Here’s another dose of sunshine from Farm Camp, 2014! On the day of our arrival, we devoured delicious chili, coleslaw and corn cakes that Tim the girl made and then learned how to use birch bark for paper! Quinn taught a class where we wrote wishes on the bark and then hung them from a tree. When the wind blows, our wishes will also blow out into the world.

Week 2 of LDBA Farm Camp was a bit rainier than week 1- but that didn’t stop us from exploring and having a blast. Iris showed us the ropes with her chickens, pigs and sheep dogs, and Thomas Callahan (of Horsecycles fame) led us into the lush Berkshire forests in search of Birch Bark and mushrooms for that day’s classes. Stay tuned for more incredible photos from Hazel, who joined us for the week!

In other exciting LDBA news: Check out LDBA’s feature in the journal section of the brand new website called PEMBERTON. This company is a creative team specializing in design and creative direction for consumer products, digital experiences, and holistic brand identities. We invited Taylor Pemberton, the founder and creative director of the company, to help us set up camp, (we had him in the forest with a chainsaw cutting up trees- thanks Taylor!)  His pictures are fantastic and we are honored to be a part of his launch. See more HERE.

This is a glimpse of the food part of Farm Camp, Session 1. Lee Desrosiers was our magic chef (pictured above watching his pine needle fired mussels). The  surrounding wild herbs, flowers and farm fresh veggies made up most of our menu- stay tuned for more incredible food photos- there’s even whispers of a FARM CAMP COOKBOOK in the works. SHHH.
Have a beautiful weekend, everybody, and remember- XOXO LDBA LOVES YOU.

Farm Camp 2014!

From the top: We dyed all sorts of camp flags with indigo, madder, turmeric, beets, onion skins and herbs- We strung up the dyed fabric on clothes lines next to our LDBA tipi, and let the rain and the dew wash over the fabric for the rest of camp.
Every morning, we’d check for eggs down in the chicken coop- running through fields of wild thyme. Mornings would be quiet and contemplative by the fire waiting for breakfast, drawing and telling each other our dreams from the night before.
We found a swimming hole with a rope swing not far from camp, and would go cool ourselves down in the heat of the day.
