Join local astronomer and author Stephan Martin on a tour of the beautiful night sky above the farm as we explore stories of connection between the night sky, the universe and our own lives. We’ll explore some of the myths of the stars and constellations as well as the latest theories of the universe and the surprising connections between the food grown at the farm and the history of the universe. All ages are welcome and no background in astronomy or science is required.
