This prevalence of local productivity was celebrated by The LAVA Center in Greenfield, too. Small Business Saturday marked the revival of the center’s Holiday Salon series, which is in its third year bringing together local artisans, vendors and creatives. Holiday Salons will be held on Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. through Dec. 17.
“It’s really a core purpose of The LAVA Center to foster the community,” co-coordinator Jan Maher said.
The latest installment specifically focused on local writers and publishing companies, such as Dog Hollow Press and Human Error Publishing. Bringing in these unique and innovative minds, Maher said, is “part of the creative economy that is slowly but steadily growing here in Greenfield.”
“Each of them brings not only themselves, but people who know their work and support their work,” she said. “It builds over time, and for me, that’s what really makes Greenfield a special place.”
