The Institute of Sustainable Nutrition (TIOSN) in West Granby is now enrolling students for the 2015/2016 session of its unique, one-year certification program. This experiential and interactive program is held on weekends and is designed to teach participants how to create resilient soil health in their gardens, participate in the food community, and create individual health through enriched lifestyle and nutrition.

Students learn about the plant model, conduct soil testing, plant garlic, start seeds and tend crops as they grow. They build and keep a beehive as well as forage for wild food to prepare at the farm. In addition to learning about the cultural and scientific aspects of nutrition, students practice mindful eating and enjoy meals prepared together.

An early tuition discount of $1500 is available for students enrolling by March 31.
