Orange Peel Bakery owner Juli Vanderhoop says she intends to resolve the employees' complaints.


Aquinnah selectperson, tribal leader and founder of Orange Peel Bakery, Juli Vanderhoop has been selected for this year's Creative Living Award by the Martha’s Vineyard Community Foundation.


The Orange Peel Bakery in Aquinnah is not a traditional dance space. Yet this past Friday, it hosted the Brooklyn-based dance troupe Urban Bush Women in conjunction with the Yard.

Juli Vanderhoop, Aquinnah select board member and owner of Orange Peel Bakery, moved back to the Island 20 years ago for the community, she told a group of 30 people Friday at the Martha’s Vineyard Museum.

Mark Twain said, “Everyone talks about the weather, but no one does anything about it.” In these days of climate change that’s no longer strictly true, but most people recognize the sentiment. And as much as weather, community is one of those things that everyone talks about and everyone feels strongly about.
