Gregory Mastroianni | Gardener

My gardens tell a story that words cannot of childhood memories and envisioned bliss. Whether the front, back or side, foundational perennials native to the Northeast anchor the overall design with various colored annuals to keep it interesting each year. I cherish the relationship between plant and gardener.


Rupert Deese | Artist

Rupert has been playing and singing traditional music for a decade. He'll be sharing music learned from historical recordings, friends, and the old-time music communities in Los Angeles and Chicago.


Laurie Jacobs | Gardener

In the over twenty years we’ve lived here, our gardens on our corner lot have grown and changed. Recently we’ve added a variety of native trees, shrubs and perennials to our mixed borders. You’re welcome to wander around the house--we suggest starting at the front and then head to the right and along the back.


Cenna Khatib | Artist

Cenna Khatib is a vibrant 25-year-old, who serves as an Inclusion Teacher at Lynn Public School and is deeply committed to fostering an inclusive educational environment. Her journey began in 2021 when she graduated from Hofstra University, where she not only earned a BA degree in Psychology and Creative Writing but also held the prestigious position of President at Hofstra Sp!t, a spoken word club. Cenna's passion for poetry ignited over 13 years ago amidst the turmoil of the Syrian Revolution, sparking within her a profound desire to express herself through verse. Recently, she unveiled her debut poetry collection, "The Screams I Whisper," marking a significant milestone in her literary endeavors.


Frances Levy-Freiman | Gardener

A cottage garden on the property of a Royal Barry Wills home. Landscape, hardscapes, pergola, shed, trellis and arbor designed and built by the owners. Numerous perennials, window boxes and pots full of annuals. An explosion of color!
