You're invited ~
The Writer's Center hosts a film about legendary Poet and Conservationist, WS Merwin Poet Laureate W.S. Merwin has won almost every major poetry prize that exists, including two Pulitzers. His legacy is based not only upon his writings but also his singular form of environmental activism and land stewardship he embodies.
Now in his 87th year, Merwin has dedicated over three decades to preserving and regenerating native plants and palms on a 19-acre site on the north shore of Maui, Hawaii. Called the Merwin Conservancy, the preserve holds the most comprehensive private collection of palms in the world, with over 800 species. These tangible actions for the environment go hand-in-hand with his poetry, offering important insights for an era marked by environmental degradation, human disconnect with natural processes, and rapid climate change.

Croissants return soon!
Spring Mill Bread Co. has purchased the ovens of the former St. Michel Bakery and they have hired St. Michel's baker, the man behind the mouth-watering croissants everyone loves. In coming weeks, croissants return to our Market. Beside bringing back our beloved croissants, the Market is adding a French speaking and French inspired artisan of macaroons and truffles. The Market is also adding an artisan of Italian cuisine and on Wednesdays, look for Balkanic Taste Food Truck. Chef Rosen brings cuisine from the streets of the Balkan regions. Balkan cuisine is balanced between Western and Eastern influences. Balkan food is closely related to Turkish, Greek, Italian and other Mediterranean cuisines.
Come experience a blend of local and international farm-market traditions...
