Alan will guide participants in making delicious Chocolate Ganache Truffles and (shhh), will let you in on a few of his baking secrets. The Ganache base can be transformed into Chocolate Frosting and then into Hot Fudge using only the ingredients: chocolate, cream and butter. This is a messy, hands on workshop with plenty of “testing” the creations.
*Please Note: this event has been rescheduled due to snow.
Why prune? What are the benefits of pruning?
When, how and with what should we prune our trees?

The first evening will give an overview of biodynamics, the practices
and principles and an introduction to using the biodynamic planting calendar. Day two will cover the various foods, herbs
and lifestyle practices that support the transition from winter into spring including an explanation of how to live in
harmony with all seasons. The second part of the class will cover in detail how to grow, harvest and use
many of Deb's favorite spring tonic herbs. A hands-on demonstration of how to make an herbal

Join us for a hands-on workshop to explore the joys of decomposition! Every garden needs compost
to grow strong and healthy plants. Come learn how to make compost that will feed your plants and
nourish your being! We will spend time discussing different materials and their properties, as well
as the composting processes and the magical influence of various preparations on the inner workings
of the pile. We will then head outside for some hands-on compost building.
This workshop is designed to recall some of the
knowledge of bygone days, where sustenance and nutrition relied on familiarity, skill, and careful
preparation. We will cover common edible and medicinal plants, plus some lichens and fungi that
grow right in our backyards. Both field forays & a cooking session will provide a taste
of what is out there. Be prepared to sample new foods from weeds to tree bark
to rock tripe.
The focus of this workshop will be helping you to create your own personal plan by working with case studies, storytelling, art, visualization and creative business problem solving systems. Ideally, you'll leave with an improved vision that will help you make your business more successful and rewarding.
Details coming soon.
