The sec­ond annu­al Islands Vil­lage Faire (also called the Stress Less fest) was held this week­end at Miss­ing Moun­tain Farm on Fri­day, Sat­ur­day, and Sunday.

It offered a nice vis­it with folks who want­ed to barter, share sus­tain­abil­i­ty ideas, eat great food, hear music, and more. Spon­sored by Kels Boreen’s One Tree Records, the event got an enthu­si­as­tic thumbs-up from every­one I checked in with, when I dropped by.

Peo­ple were able to hang around for a good while, as there were crafts & games & things for kids to do…and a good time was had by all.

  2. In these some­times crazy times, it was com­fort­ing to see all the peo­ple who prac­tice the heal­ing arts on the island, in one place. If we learn to share, then the heal­ing that comes with a good pos­i­tive con­nec­tion with each oth­er will hap­pen. Peace.
