July 19 – July 20, Newbury, Ma., Saturday 9AM – Sunday 6PM


You are invited to participate in a tiny house social opportunity with artists, artisans, tiny house enthusiasts and builders, a local organic chef, local organic wines, and 12 other participants.

Last weekend we received permission to announce our last summer social prior to the Silver Bullet Premiere Event. We have been madly, excitedly, planning ever since!

This event will cost $55.00 each and that includes Saturday dinner and Sunday brunch and wine! Why so little, you say?

We are very pleased to announce that we received a grant from local donors to underwrite the cost of this event for the Silver Bullet Tiny House/Classroom if we do it within July!!  At a recent festival, an additional donor funded 5 full scholarships to any participant who may be unemployed, underprivileged or underfunded!

To see if you qualify, fill out application attached and send to verastruck@mac.com (you will have an answer within 48 hours). Speakers will be announced Monday on the website.

To register, please send $55.00 via Paypal to verastruck@mac.com and you will receive confirmation, event details, directions, what to bring, etc.
