Sponsored in part by the State of Florida, Department of State,  Division of Cultural Affairs, the Florida Arts Council, and the National Endowment for the Arts.

It is to be a place for the study and teaching of traditional arts and crafts, methods of farming and gardening and stewardship of the land, going all the way back to the prehistoric occupants of the land, some 12,000 years ago.

Among the areas of activity specifically listed in the Institute’s Articles of Incorporation are raising fiber producing animals — shearing, spinning, weaving — and the encouragement of fiber arts; traditional and experimental organic horticulture and agriculture, based in the philosophy of a self-contained, sustainable farm; growing and use of culinary and medicinal herbs; manufacture and repair of traditional implements, tools and furniture.

These are not meant to be exclusive, but to guide the work of the Institute as it develops over the years.

The Institute embodies a reverence for what is good in the past, and a desire to see that good brought forward into the present and the future.

* The preservation and conservation of the Lake McBride aquatic system, including its water quality and its pristine watershed, the last of its kind in Leon County, Florida;

* The preservation from development of radiologically, ecologically, historically and agriculturally significant Millstone Plantation, including its home, outbuildings and grounds, as a sustainable, complete and balanced working farm;

* The preservation of Millstone Plantation for its aesthetic qualities of natural beauty and for scientific, educational and cultural uses and to serve, on a periodic basis, as a participatory example for the education and benefit of the public.

We’re all sunburnt because who remembers SPF face paint in November, wearing a jacket?? But it was wonderful. I have some photos but only Favorite Daughter knows how to extract them and transform them into bloggable computer bits, so sorry, no instant gratification is possible for any of us right now!
