Did you know that you can make your own cheese at home? Well you can and it is surprisingly easy.

Join Slow Food Leader and Homesteader, Pam Carlton, for this fun, interactive class.  You will be making (and tasting) a simple chevre (soft goat cheese) and mozzarella.   You will go home with some cheese as well as the recipes so you can make these cheeses again at home!

This class is for ages 16 and up.  Limited to 6 participants so everyone gets a hands on experience.  A minimum of 4 participants is needed for the class to run.

Seasonal Eating to Thrive Retreat – How to Cook for Spring

The four seasons provide a natural rhythm to keep us in optimal health. Traditionally, each season brings new foods to the table. Eating seasonally supports health and wellness by helping our bodies adjust to the weather, our energy and activity levels, and more.

Spring is the season of new life. Come Spring, we get restless for change, for cleansing and newness, for the sun and renewed energy, for recommitting to our dreams. Nature gives us what we need to support this mood. A growing garden, green Spring vegetables, fresh eggs, and the sun feeds our body, energy, and mind.

If you need to change your diet or learn more cooking skills for health reasons, weight issues, can’t-get-dinner-on-the-table issues, or just because you love to learn, this weekend is for you!
