Open House with The Institute Of Sustainable Nutrition
Tour the Holcomb Farm in West Granby and meet the staff and students of The Institute of Sustainable Nutrition (TIOSN) at their Open House on August 19. Starting at 6:30pm, the free event will include cooking a dish using wild edibles and a garden tour. Attendees will also learn about TIOSN’s one-year certification program while sipping tea made from the garden and tasting tidbits made by the students.
During the open house, attendees can meet former students and go on a wild forage to learn about local wild food and herbs. There will also be information presented on seasonal happenings and an overview of kitchen medicine.
TIOSN is reshaping nutrition education by teaching nutrition, soil health, soil re-mineralization, growing food, foraging, cooking, kitchen medicine and overall sustainable health. Students are now being enrolled for 2016-17 programs for Sustainable Nutrition Certification and Remembering Our Roots: Herbal Intensive. Registration ends September 10.
