Learn about our Amish/Mennonite neighbors!
This is a unique opportunity to gain an understanding of our Amish neighbors with a local expert who grew up in Pinecraft.

The Amish and Mennonites have had a presence in Sarasota since the 1920’s.  Many Amish/Mennonites from the North are seasonal visitors. This is an opportunity to learn more about this unique community.
