Upper Valley Power of Produce (POP) Clubs
Power of Produce (POP) Clubs are fun, free, and filled with fresh local food. Fourteen locations are hosting Power of Produce this summer. Find the schedule below or download it here. Kids sign up at the POP Host table and learn about the day’s produce-based activity. It might be a scavenger hunt, a quiz, an easy salad recipe. When they’ve completed the activity (everyone’s a winner!) children receive $2-3 of kids-only market money to spend on produce. Kids can come once or come many times, during the hours listed below. No need to sign up in advance or come at a certain start time. It’s a wonderful way to connect children with healthy eating, healthy shopping, local farms, and fun!

From the Hudson River School paintings to Monumental Sculpture from the Gilded Age
A summer workshop for K-12 teachers and librarians designed to help educators tap into the transformative powers of art and nature while studying conservation history, landscape painting and monumental sculpture. The first day of the workshop will be in Woodstock, VT and the second day of the workshop will be in Cornish, NH. Through this workshop, we hope to encourage teachers to incorporate the art collections at the National Parks into their curricula and to bring their students to the National Parks to experience place-based education and view these national treasures in person.
Location: Marsh Billings Rockefeller National Park, Saint Gaudens Historic Site
Begins: Aug 15
