Successfull Sustainablility Weekend At Tomahawk Creek Farm


The Arkansas Craft School, partnering with Meadowcreek Linkproject, hosted a tremendously successful Sustainability Weekend at beautiful Tomahawk Creek Farm this past weekend.  The event featured workshops in Textile Dyeing with Dana Shaeffer, Ultimate Organic Skincare with Amy Hazel, and Building an Earth Oven with Pete Klinkhammer.  Working with some of the best cooks in Stone County, delicious artisan lunches were offered daily, along with a splendid farm-to-table dinner on Saturday evening.

A concert of traditional and contemporary folk music was presented on a vast array of acoustic instruments by Illinois ensemble Finnegans Wake on Saturday night.  The concert featured an appearance by very special guest Andrei Codrescu, noted novelist, poet, and NPR commentator, who debuted a new poem with characteristic charm, wit and humor.

Jamie Murawski, visionary owner and designer of Tomahawk Creek Farm, led participants on guided tours of the ground’s greenhouse, canning kitchen, planting beds, gardens and other features.
