Sanctuary Steward: Mariam Massaro
Singing Brook Farm is land richly endowed with native species including: Black Cohosh, Bloodroot, Partridge Berry, Ladies Slipper, Goldthread, Maidenhair Fern, Spikenard as well as others on the UpS “At Risk” and “To Watch” lists. Open to the public one day per week in the summer months for tours, the farm also offers workshops, classes and ceremonial events, water garden tours, apprenticeships for Wise Ways Herbals, organic planting and harvesting throughout the year.
Certified Organic by NOFA/Mass in 1996, the farm is nestled in a tiny valley in the Berkshire hills of western Massachusetts. Singing Brook Farm is already a sanctuary for plants, people and animals with a primary purpose to provide a public place for people to see medicinal herbs growing in their wild, natural settings, to help foster awareness of their value and show the ease in which they can be grown. Trails for herb and forest walks as well as working organic herb gardens add to the educational value of this farm.
