In my store is an eclectic ever-evolving selection of favorites + one-of-a-kind finds and limited editions from my studio.

    A Writer’s Shack As featured in the book The Maine House, this is where E.B. White wrote Charlotte’s Web. He sat at a desk he built himself: three pine boards fixed to a brace and fastened beneath a window, two legs propping up the other end. White positioned himself wisely- in a corner flanked by two windows, facing neither. Who could write with a view like that? “I would really rather feel bad in Maine than feel good anywhere else,” E.B. White famously wrote. Other favorite books are One Man’s Meat and Essays of E.B. White- classic collections by one of the greatest essayists of our time. The Maine House by  @basha_oog   #ebwhite   #mainewritersshack   #shackonthecoast   #magnificentessays

    The Banks of the Bièvre near Bicêtre Henri Rousseau- 1908 Did you know that Rousseau was a self-taught artist? The artist identified the subject of this painting, a working-class community on the southern edge of Paris, in a handwritten note affixed to the reverse side of the work. The Arcades de Buc, an aqueduct built under Louis XIV to supply fountains at the palace of Versailles, is recognizable at right and confirms the location.

    Mountain of Golden Oyster Mushrooms Will dry them in the sun so they get even more Vitamin D. Follow my work  @riversedgefarmny  , my mini organic zero waste-medicinal-pollinator-composting-carbon capturing farm. Forgot one more: foraging for wild edibles, like the mushrooms featured here

When Time magazine named me a new Green Pioneer in 2009, I had just launched my first online eco friendly general store in Los Angeles, and an online quarterly Almanac Newsletter about everything positive going on in the environment. I also authored the book LOLA Lots of Love Always, about how to live a sustainable lifestyle and make healthy choices that are good for you and the planet. Although targeted to young women, it ended up appealing to all age groups.

As my life and work evolved over the years, my dream was increasingly about living a simpler lifestyle closer to nature, hence my move to the Hudson Valley in Upstate New York, where I could still continue my work, have a much larger garden, woods to wander in and be the best steward I can be of the land I now call home.

Now, I have a new store: Priscilla-Woolworth-Store-Studio, which continues to reflect my lifestyle: acquiring things that are useful, made to last, and don’t harm the planet.

My “larger” garden became a mini organic farm, River’s Edge Farm, where I grow enough food that I am able to donate a portion to a food pantry called the Recovery Kitchen in Hudson, New York. I also sell wild foraged and grown produce to an organic community market in Philmont, New York.

The journey continues.
