Raw Food Celebration & Permaculture Workshop

Raw Food

Come study Permaculture with Kris Holstrom, owner of Tomten Farm and the art of gourmet raw food with Gabriela Ranzi. You'll experience why a raw food diet can aid the body in healing on a cellular level, as well as how to prepare delicious, nutritious and easy recipes. Learn why enzymes are so important, how to get your protein needs through plants, how to make your own ferments such as kimchi, sauerkraut and kombucha, and how to maintain a raw foods lifestyle. We will discuss and put into action beginning permaculture practices for the season ahead. Activities may include creating a composting station for building soil, looking at the topography of the landscape and defining swale lines for maximizing water absorption in the ground and putting together layer mulching for rich organic planting beds. The focus on food and permaculture will be coupled with daily yoga, meditation and movement classes that will support the full integration of this program. Massage by appointment will be offered as well.
