Anne Loarie

Anne's art is an attempt to capture that breathless moment when beauty is about to slip between  fingers and disappear.  It evokes whimsy and nostalgia.  It is a tribute to the flamboyancy of nature's blooms and greenery and is partnered with other soulful materials because life is full of unexpected harmony.
All of the materials have been collected locally in Sonoma County and surrounding area and all flora has been hand selected and pressed by Anne.

Chris Herrod

Will be performing 2 sets.
Children's folk songs
Original music rock and folk

Country Industrial

At Country Industrial we spend our days rummaging through heaps of scrap metal and old wood piles looking for that perfect piece of junk. Once found we take it back to the shop and breathe new life into it. Turning a scratched up pipe into a beautiful new vase or creating a stylish coffee table out of a discarded hardwood shipping crate are examples of the many recreations we may make.

Dragonfly Floral 

Flowers speak to us all in a silent language that needs no translation. Flowers are offered for every occasion in our lives from the greatest celebrations and sorrows to the quieter messages that reach out to say everything from I love you- to just wanted to cheer you up. Garden flowers and herbs with their vibrant or subtle fragrances are true aromatherapy and carry the message straight to the heart

Welcome to a country garden just minutes from the Healdsburg Plaza. Drive slowly up the pot-holed gravel road, stopping to eavesdrop on a private conversation between two tiny ducks or wait a bit while a herd of ducks weave back and forth in front of your car. At the end of the driveway, a giant cactus will usher you into the garden where you can enjoy the peace and the beauty we hope to share with you.
Dragonfly Farm is a working 6 acre organic flower garden. Our seasonal offerings are immense and varied, New things are planted constantly to supply our floral designs, to feed our spirits, our families and the wildlife. We replaced what had been a monoculture with a diverse environment that supports an increasingly more diverse population of birds, bees, and other beneficial insects.


Joe theGreenGrocer will be selling wonderful handcrafted and delicious food for your dining pleasure.  Real food on real plates!
