Triform Media Group

Triform Media Group (TMG) has been active since October 2015. It is a new way for Triform to work with students. The group is comprised of two Students (Alex T. and Hannah P.) and one Apprentice (Cheney R.) The Co-workers are Aroon and Laura.

At the beginning, we were not sure where and how to start. Then, thanks to the generosity of Marika Partrdige, who not only donated recording equipment but also provided initials lessons in how to produce radio programs.

The first two months we have been experimenting with sounds. We have been taking interviews of each other and sometimes going to Hudson to record different ambiances. In January, we visited the local radio station WGXC in Hudson. They were extremely generous and supportive of our initiative. Lynn, the station manager at WGXC Hudson, gave us an overview of the equipment and we played a few of our recordings on their equipment. Hannah was on the mic and it was a blast!

The "Camphill Radio Show" will be broadcasted on WGXC and also uploaded as a podcast file on our website. Eventually our goal is to reach out to the wider audience outside Camphill Communities. TMG would like to cover personal stories of co-workers, students, volunteers and employees who make our community special. We would like to cover workshops, festivals, events and perhaps happenings in the other communities in the region.  We plan to be on air by the end of March 2016.

Looking forward,
Aroon for the Triform Media Group

These beautiful animals are a big part of the farm and Max was kind enough to give me a tour of the dairy operation to let me get sense of just how these cows fit into the bigger picture of the community.
While we talk, Max is busy herding heifer calves born this spring to nurse with their mothers.He explains that Triform’s herd is a mixed one, combing a variety of breeds, including Jersey, Devon, and Swiss Brown cows. Once the calves are seen to, we move on to milking. I learn right away that Triform’s cows are more than just livestock; each has their own name and distinct personality. Lily introduces me to Stormy, a very sweet Holstein that I’m told is one of the cows most beloved by the community.As we settle in to milk, slowly filling our pales, Max elaborat…
