and due to demand we’ll run it again on:

Saturday, May 16th 10am – 5pm

The Rowell Farm and Homestead, Nottingham, New Hampshire

This third in a series of seasonal retreats offers direct experiences of earth-centered living to help us align our lifestyles and activities with the natural rhythms of the seasons. With Lauren Chase-Rowell and Beth Tener as your guides, you will experience a deeper sense of self-reliance and restoration of mind, body, and spirit. We are what we eat. We will explore growing and eating locally harvested food, which is a powerful and delicious way to reconnect to nature.

Enjoy a day at Lauren’s farm beginning with a tour. Her farm is a living landscape that provides food for her family and a biodiverse range of species that make it their home. We will also explore:

Collecting Wild Edible Plants – Discover nature’s bounty for free that is right outside our door; prepare what we find for lunch.
• Planting Seeds – Plant early season seeds and seedlings.
• Embracing Our Connection to Animals on a Farm – Gather in the kitchen to learn how to make simple homemade cheeses from local raw goat and cow’s milk.

We will enjoy locally-grown organic home-cooked food during the retreat, as well as rich companionship and conversation within the circle of returning and new participants.

Cost: $100 (includes lunch and snacks)
