The connection between kids, their food, and farming seems to be a natural relationship and it’s great to see the strong support for that relationship here in the City of Kingston. ‘Urban agriculture’ has become very popular and it’s a great opportunity to utilize small, available spaces near population centers to produce food and introduce […]

Doers and Dreamers – Jillian Fisher

It was certainly appropriate to photograph this week’s Doer and Dreamer in a thriving and venerable restaurant(the Hoffman House) that emanates the feel of 18th century tavern because her business is centered around exploiting the many assets of Kingston and its surrounding area. Historical buildings like the Hoffman House which date from the 17th century […]

Doers and Dreamers – Frank Waters

A fairly common scenario seems to be that young couples with children are moving to the Kingston area from various parts of the New York metropolitan area drawn by affordable housing, a slower paced lifestyle, and a generally more ‘livable’ environment. This week’s Doer and Dreamer has done just that and like many other newcomers […]

Doers and Dreamers – Andrea Shaut

No one should ever think that making a living as any kind of artist is easy and looking at the number of hats this week’s Doer and Dreamer(and many others) has to wear is clear evidence of that. Not only do artists have to excel at their craft, but they also have to continually promote […]
