The Week Ahead: Friday, May 19 through Thursday, May 25
May 19, 2017
May marches on and the week days, and more so the weekends, get busier and busier. This week The Week Ahead brings us entertainment reflecting all the arts – from dance, to music, the visual arts and more. Starting at week’s end is the 3rd Annual Environmental Film Festival whose theme this year is ‘Nature as Inspiration.’ It’s the perfect point of reference as we tend our personal patches of Mother Earth as spring proceeds into summer. The Mytoi Garden Spring Cleanup, Vineyard Gardens Free Summer Seminars and Polly Hill’s Plant Sale Preview (featured below) all take place over the course of this week to provide both inspiration and guidance. Enjoy the Week Ahead!
