Hilltown Families

Founder Sienna Wildfield describes Hilltown Families as an "online grassroots communication network" that helps local families connect in order to exchange ideas and information. An artist and activist, Wildfield started Hilltown Families after moving to the hilltowns with her then-infant daughter and finding herself feeling isolated. What began as a listserv six years ago has expanded with advances in technology; now visitors to the handsomely designed site will find podcasts of the Hilltown Family Variety Show, which plays eclectic family-friendly music; expansive lists of weekly events for families; and art and columns by contributors on topics that will appeal to folks raising kids or just interested in participating in their local communities. "The word 'family' is really the same as the word 'community'—they can mean so many things," Wildfield says.
