Natural Awakenings Fairfield Cty/Housatonic Valley, CT

Vegetable Gardening Workshop at Heckscher Farm

Apr 29, 2011 01:14PM

Join our growing community committed to holistic wellbeing and eco-friendly living by attending Natural Awakenings Natural Connections Nights, hosted monthly by a local business. Meet area practitioners and green experts. Learn about services and products geared toward living a healthy, balanced lifestyle, and make like-minded personal and professional connections.

  On Wednesday, May 18 Natural Connections Night will be hosted by Stamford Museum & Nature Center from 6 to 8 p.m. Join us for a Vegetable Gardening workshop led by Will Kies. As Director of Education at SMNC, Kies is in charge of the Nature Center and Heckscher Farm, where over 50 varieties of fruits and vegetables are planted in their organic garden! This workshop offers the beginner or advanced gardener a wonderful opportunity to learn from this local expert, while also experiencing the beautiful working grounds of Heckscher Farm.

  Next month, Natural Connections Night returns to Sticks & Stones Farm in Newtown, on Wednesday, June 22. Join us for a moonlit outdoor labyrinth walk in a beautiful natural setting, followed by refreshments. Although Sticks and Stones is a working farm, it shares its gorgeous, tranquil setting – 60 acres complete with streams, hiking trails, and forest preserve - with individuals, families, and groups who are seeking rustic day and weekend retreats. The Farm also hosts stone classes, healthy culinary classes, yoga and pilates classes, children’s summer workshops, and celebrations.

These events are free. The May 18 gardening workshop at Heckscher Farm is from 6 to 8 p.m., at 39 Scofieldtown Road, Stamford. To RSVP for either of these events, email [email protected]. Space is limited.
