Spend a day on a beautiful farm relaxing, learning, and nourishing yourself! re-Treat yourself, your mother, your best friend, or maybe your recent grad?
The Art of Food is offered for the first time on May 19, 2019 by a trio of local women who are passionate about nourishment of the body, mind, and spirit through creativity, nutrition, movement, and connection to soil.
- Carole Caplan is the owner of The Farm on Jennings, which evolved from a need to be nourished and to nourish others in body, mind, and spirit. Carole grows food, flowers, and herbs, and sharing the farm with others brings her great joy! She is also a certified yoga instructor, and will lead us in a class for all levels of ability in the beautiful, windowed room overlooking the farm. You will also have the opportunity to walk the farm and enjoy the fruits—and flowers—of Carole’s labor.
- Cara Cummings is an artist, gardener, and storyteller who has been deeply involved in supporting farms, growing food, and being inspired by whatever is growing in her garden—or someone else’s! Cara will bring the art and science of food and farming to life through conversation, demonstration, and painting instruction. You will spend the afternoon choosing your model, playing with watercolor, and creating a piece of botanical art to take home (along with some fun art supplies).
- And as a holistic health coach and professionally trained chef who understands that true nourishment is about the food—and much more than the food—health coach and We Love Ann Arbor columnist Liza Baker will be leading an interactive workshop that will set you on a path to nourishing yourself deeply on every level. You’ll leave with a roadmap to achieving your highest health and wellbeing—and the resources to “recalculate” as needed in the future.
This retreat is open to everyone age 16 and over. No previous experience with yoga, farming/gardening, or art required—all skill levels welcome!
