The Funk House Art Garden is a recreational Bohemian social club that I founded in 2009 while living in Middlebury, Vermont at the address formerly known as 190 South Pleasant Street. My former residence, the Joshua Henshaw House, was built in the early 1800’s and is listed on the state’s historical registry. It was an interesting building to live in, albeit cold and drafty in the winter.
I lived in two different apartments in this building, and with the exception of a few rowdy neighbors from time to time, genuinely enjoyed creating art and a garden there. Now, I am creating my art and garden in California in a different rented space that I share with my lover, companion, dearest friend, and the Garden’s guard dog, Stella.
The three of us are happy and keeping ourselves nourished with an abundant supply of love, encouragement, kindness, and kale.
