Everyone’s heard of the Running of the Bulls in Pamplona but are you familiar with the Strolling of the Heifers? It may not have the cache of Spain’s 100 year old spectacle but then again, you don’t have to worry about getting gored like the 15 people on record for having died during the real thing.
On the contrary, Brattleboro’s bovine parade is all about staying alive and celebrating healthy, local, sustainable living. Check it out along with the Slow Living Summit that takes place concurrently in Brattleboro June 7-9.
Our ace Community Activist, Loryn Dion is the official representative of Vermont Woods Studios at the Heifer’s parade and Slow Living Summit. Loryn’s been working with Bob Bouvier and Rick Gravelin of the Vermont WoodNet to set up a booth to introduce visitors to Vermont’s sustainable fine wooden furniture. We’ll be part of the Woodlands and Forestry exhibit that features demonstrations on forest management, wildlife of the woods, invasive species and much more.
Stay tuned for more details from Loryn and plan to stop by our Vermont Sustainable Furniture booth on the Brattleboro Common June 8 if you can.
