PHOTOS: Sylvester Manor's Tea and Tree Celebration

Sylvester Manor opens its doors for a historic holiday tradition.

Sylvester Manor welcomed members, and those wishing to be, last Saturday for tea and holiday songs in a simple, elegant gathering.

Their mission is to cultivate, preserve, and share Sylvester Manor's lands, buildings and stories - inviting new thought about the importance of food, culture and place in our daily lives.

To fulfill this mission, they need your help. They have a matching grant about to expire at the end of 2011. Eben Fiske Ostby of PIXAR will match up to $250,000 in 2011 donations to Sylvester Manor Educational Farm.  

They have only $30,000 to go.  Those wishing to contribute, or learn more may visit their website at http://sylvestermanor.wordpress.com/donate/ or tax-deductible checks may be mailed to Sylvester Manor Educational Farm Inc., PO Box 2029, Shelter Island, NY 11964.
