July Event Schedule and Highlights
* Taste an array of living food dishes
* 3:30 pm Start Eating
* 5 pm "How to grow your own food" by Jeff Rose, owner of Natural Zing and farmer. Jeff will provide a farm tour and educational session on how to grow your own organic food. There is no act more gratifying, more basic, more liberating, than to coax food from the Earth. From the satisfaction of just doing it, to saving money, to providing the most nutrition food for you and your family, the reasons are plentiful. In this session you'll learn about container gardening in small spaces, growing in gardens, growing in greenhouses for year round growing and harvesting wild foods.
*7 pm "Active Isolated Stretching (AIS)" 1 hour session by Robert Jordan, a nationally certified massage therapist (NCTMB). AIS is a system for use by any individual who suffers from contracted, painful muscles. Sedentary living habits and the repeated (habitual) use of flexor muscles are often major reasons for lack of complete range of motion. For example sitting at a computer all day may cause stiffness in the shoulders and carpal tunnel syndrome. One benefit is that AIS improves oxygenation and nutrition of myofascial structures promoting growth and repair. To learn more about AIS go to Robert's website: http://www.robertjordanhealthservices.com
*** Please wear loose clothing for stretching.
* Possible campfire, if time permits.
