Upcoming Workshops, Studio for Rent and Community Potluck

Sat. Nov. 17  
Natural Building with Charles Bell

We'll be creating a semi circular bench in the garden using little more than the earth under our feet.  Come learn skills that can be applied to a wide variety of natural building projects for beautiful, durable and long lasting natural structures.  Clay + Sand + Straw = Bench, Oven, Studio, House... Whatever!  Cob is a structural composite of clay, sand, straw and water which lends itself to freeform artistic building while still being strong enough for any situation and easy enough for anyone to do.
No experience necessary, just a willingness to get dirty and have fun.  Come for the full day or just an hour.  Children most welcome.  Cost:  Donation  (TB$ accepted)


Sunday Nov. 18  
Fermenting Vegetables with Dawn Bourgeois
In this fun, hands-on class, you will learn step-by-step how to make raw fermented vegetables. We will discuss the tools needed, the production process from start to finish and ways to eat them. You will also learn the benefits of eating this amazing healing food! You will walk away with a handout of the process discussed in class, a jar of vegetables and the confidence to make fermented vegetables in your own kitchen. Join us for an afternoon of fun and fermentation!  Cost:  $15  (TB$ accepted)

In 2006, after struggling with health issues and the current medical system, she began deeply exploring natural healing and food as medicine. She is passionate and intrigued by the ability of fermented foods to heal and nurture the body.
