February lies at the heart of winter. It’s a time to marvel at our transformed (and recently snowy!) surroundings, cozy up in our homes and kitchens, and plan for the spring ahead. This month’s programs at Stone Barns Center in Pocantico Hills are all about learning new skills and getting out for a look at the winter farmscape.
