Farm Dinner Club Saturday, July 13th- Herb Love!
Aarona Pichinson together with musician Tyler Sussman of the Didge project will keep it cool as the summer heats up. The herb garden will be in full bloom. Do you know what the much beloved and used echinacea looks like? It’s beautiful! Tulsi, calendula and spilanthes to name a few will also be in full bloom. Refresh yourself pre- and post-class with refreshing and cooling herbal teas.
Farm Dinner Club Sunday, July 14th- Earth Day with Eric and Lucy
Eric Stoneberg and Lucy Child will join forces to create a fun and sacred Earth ceremony for the body and mind. Through yoga, an evocative soundscape and a meditative gong bath, Lucy and Eric will draw healing resonance from their shared love of the Peruvian cosmology.
Farm Dinner Club Saturday, July 27th- Get Your Dance On!
Natasha Blank, of Get Your Dance On, will be co-teaching with yogis Abby Paloma and Ali Schechter and AJ Block will be live on the Didgerdoo. Center and warm up with yoga, work it up/work it out with dance, and cool down and integrate with yoga. Believe it or not, it’s time to start fall planting in the greenhouse. But there’s still plenty happening in the fields, including cucumbers to keep us all cool.
Farm Dinner Club Saturday, August 17th- Tomato and Pepper Town!
Beloved Christie Clark and Margi Young, formerly of OM yoga, will be back for their second year and second OM yoga reunion. The fields will be flaunting fifty varieties of heirloom tomatoes, to name a few: purple, zebra, cherry, brandywine. Hot and sweet peppers will also be making their big debut onto the fields. But don’t worry, there will still be cooling herbs on hand for refreshing drinks.
Farm Dinner Club Sunday, September 8th- Harvest Moon
Erin Dudley of Kula Yoga will be wrapping up the playful season of summer. It’s still warm, the evenings are still light, but change is in the air. Romp in the fields for on last hurray of summa time goodness. In the fields you’ll see the beginning of the final harvest: potatoes, squash and turnips. If you don’t already love turnips this could be your chance to develop a serious veggie crush.
Farm Dinner Club Sunday, September 22th- First Day of Autum
Mel Russo of Yoga High will help us usher in the new season. It’s time to settle down from the summer and transition into the fall. The fall is a time when things tend to speed up, but we really need to slow down so we can be nourished for the winter ahead. As the root vegetables start to get harvested it’s time to start rooting down ourselves. We really can’t think of a better way to celebrate the first day of Autum.
Farm Dinner Club Saturday October 5th, 4th Anniversary of Farm To Yoga and Growing Heart Farm Celebration
The original Farm To Yoga trio, Abby Paloma, Lewis Kofsky, and Anne Apparu come together to celebrate 4 years of farming, dining, and yogaing at Growing Heart Farm. Abby will be teaching and guiding the farm tour, Anne will be cooking up a divine feast in the kitchen. We will savor the flavors of abundance from the farm. Pea tendrils may be long gone, but with pickling and storing the harvest will last until next year’s young veggies sprout forth.
Farm Dinner Club Saturday, October 12th- Closing of the Season
