EARTH DAY GINKGO WALK
April 22- 3 pm
Experience the joy of nature through this Ancient meditative technique of Ginkgo Walking on this very special Earth Day! You will be on a guided stroll of the farm to experience whatever nature presents to you (including rain!) to enrich your relationship with nature and how it speaks to you. After nature journaling we reflect on what inspired you and create Haiku Poetry. No art or poetry experience required.
HERBAL WISDOM TEA PARTY
May 13th- 3 pm
In the spirit of Adelma Simmons from Capriland Herb Gardens in Coventry, my inspiration for starting to learn about herbalism and having this farm genre for teaching, we will explore the benefits of herbs and keep things real about what you can easily grow and use! I will also share with you special china and tea sets to go along your tea experience! Participants will receive educational lecture, handout, fresh herbal tea and some herbs for home use.
YOGA ON THE FARM
Welcome to the farm to begin your natural self-care journey! Enjoy the sights and sounds of nature while breathing, stretching and moving your body in a gentle way to restore and strengthen your mind and body. Instructor Nancy Boudrea will peacefully guide you towards personal healing.
GRAPEVINE DREAMCATCHER WORKSHOP
March 25th @ 1 pm
Every winter we need to prune the grape arbor which gifts us material to use for arts and crafts on the farm. Choose from the available grapevine kits that contain gemstone crystal and pearl beads, feathers, suede cord, and sinew. More materials are on hand if needed. Debra will lead you through the craft of making a dream catcher with storytelling, sea sipping and guidance for you to have a dreamcatcher of your very own!
