|Holy Ghost Tent Revival|
This year's Earth Day may have been slightly soggy, but there was nothing gloomy or grey about Valley EarthFest 2012. Held inside the Barns of Rose Hill in Berryville, VA, this all-day affair, was filled with eco-extracurriculars, a farm-to-fork food court, and some seriously top-notch tunes.
Spindles and More as well as picking up a few knitting tips. I also discovered that Hunter's Head Tavern in Upperville (one of my all-time favorite restaurants) is actually owned by Ayrshire Farm, so the food is not only tasty, but local too! After perusing some plants at The Holly Brook Farm table (and realizing I need to get busy on my garden), I headed upstairs for some brews and some tunes.
Starr Hill Brewery out of Charlottesville, was offering a sampling of their wares, of which I sipped several. To say I LOVED The Love hefeweizen is an understatement--it has just a hint of banana and a touch of clove, so it's a tad different but totally tasty.
Earthfest was one of those evenings you don't want to end, and I can't wait to see what's in store for next year's festivities. In the meantime, I look forward to seeing these bands again throughout the summer and attending many more shows at Barns of Rose Hill.
