DORSET>> Green Mountain Academy will host a mead brewing workshop with herbalist Danielle Laberge on Sunday Aug. 7 from 1 to 3 p.m. The workshop will take place at the Laberge Barn in Dorset.

Danielle Laberge will give instruction on the ins and outs of brewing mead with traditional and novel combinations of herbs for enjoyment and good health. Deceptively simple to make, the mastery of brewing the honey wine called mead lies in the details of the process, and the most difficult recipe is also the simplest, with only honey, yeast and water. This class includes some tasting, for those aged 21 and over.

Preregistration is required and costs $20. For more information or to register, call 802-867-0111 or visit
