    A Weekend at Martha's Vineyard

    STS Founder Carol Koury will welcome you and a guest to stay with her for 2 nights at her house on Martha’s Vineyard. You will need to get yourself there, but once on site, all expenses will be covered as Carol shows you around the Island, feeds you, introduces you to local farmers and Island food celebrities, and makes sure you see the sights, including, weather permitting, sunset over the famous Gay Head Cliffs. Timing for this will need to be negotiated with Carol, with Spring and Fall being the best times to view the Island.
