The summer gets rolling in the Catskills and Hudson Valley in June, and there are exciting events of every kind in Greene, Ulster, Columbia, Putnam, Sullivan, Orange, and Dutchess Counties. As fate (luck?) would have it, we featured area history in our monthly newsletter, and there are so many history-related events on the calendar this month. We didn't plan it, but we'll take it! And, of course, with the start of the summer comes the start of all the farmer's markets The Hudson Valley is known for. We've featured just a few here. Looking for the one closest to you? Look for your community on our Hudson Valley and Catskills community information pages - there's a "Farms and Markets" resource for each town. Here's a short list of the many, many

Last week, two of our agents and one of the members of our marketing team sat down with the designer and builder of the Hempcrete houses that are newly available in Stone Ridge, Paul Petrov. Paul is first of all, a ton of fun, second an expert in green building technologies who’s willing to share his deep knowledge and total enthusiasm for the topic, and third a lover of the Hudson Valley landscape and lifestyle. What follows is an edited – by half – version of our talk. Frankly, we could have talked and learned from Paul for twice as long as we did. We’re sharing the portions in which we didn’t veer wildly off-topic – we kept it to building and architecture! Here are all our (and your) questions about building with Hempcrete answered!

So, it's muddy - that's ok, we can dig it! We sat down to come up with some ways to enjoy the mud season we're having, and we found it so much easier than expected. Turns out, we're filthy rich with opportunity! It also turns out that we can come up with more mud puns than anyone can possibly stomach - so, we promise, that was my last. Here are the first 9 things that popped into our head...

Kevin Palfreyman: Hudson Valley Luminism

Coldwell Banker Village Green Realty’s Catskill NY Real Estate office is proud to present the art of Kevin Palfreyman in an exhibition titled Hudson Valley Luminism as part of our "Gallery At Work" series.

A few years later he married artist Linda Wainwright Palfreyman who introduced him to plein-air painting. Here, he found a home in nature that fostered his
