Maine Public Broadcasting - 12/29/2016.

How yoga teacher Elizabeth Burd became an accidental Christmas tree farmer
Portland Press Herald - 12/25/2016.
By Mary Pols - Elizabeth “Birdie” Burd and her partner run Celebration Tree Farm and Yoga in West Durham. After the paddleboarding and yoga craze broke out, we thought society had reached its peak of namaste mania. Then this place popped up on our Facebook feed and we had to call, if only just to find out how those two things intersect. We learned a few new things, including the fact that Burd, though she’s a “country girl” who grew up in Winthrop and Readfield, never planned to be a Christmas tree farmer. (Yoga she didn’t stumble into.)
