Presenters: Andrea Shortsleeve, Jens Hilke, and Andy Wood. 11 a.m. - 12 noon. Offered by the VT Fish and Wildlife Dept. Free. Webinar.

Music

Patio Noise - On the Patio - "Yellow Barn Inside and Out, a Program of Love and Nature" (via Zoom): Series of interactive programming conversations led by Artistic Dir. Seth Knopp. From Yellow Barn's 7/25 concert stream, audience members have the opportunity to talk to YB musicians and each other about a program exploring interactions between love and nature, from Amy Beth Kirsten's "yes i will yes i said Yes" based on the final chapter of James Joyce's Ulysses, to Toshio Hosokawa's "Windscapes" for two percussionists performed outdoors. Joining Knopp will be musicians from the concert, including saxophonist Travis Laplante, who gave a premiere performance of "The Obvious Place." Plus, an exploration of YB's outdoor performance site, the Beethoven Walks trail at Greenwood School, with reproductions of Beethoven's sketches, or leaves from his autograph manuscripts, bannered on trees. A special app designed by Yellow Barn prompts people to listen to Beethoven’s works corresponding with these sketches and manuscripts. Additional guests this week: percussionists Ayano Kataoka and Eduardo Leandro, sopranos Lucy Fitz-Gibbon and Lucy Shelton, double bassist Lizzie Burns. 4:30 - 5:45 p.m. on Tuesdays through 10/27.

Community building

Racial Justice In Vermont's Food System (Webinar): Many of VT's food system organizations - from farmland access to food access - would like to address racial justice in the food system, but some are just getting into this space for the first time.
