Natural Awakenings Fairfield & Southern Litchfield Counties

Training in Sustainable Nutrition and Gardening

Become immersed in sustainable food practices through a year-long program from The Institute of Sustainable Nutrition (TIOSN). The program begins in September 2017; participants move through life-changing, hands-on practices in the science of nutrition, local/sustainable gardening practices, culinary skills, kitchen medicine and sustainable foraging.

Housed at the Holcomb Farm in West Granby, TIOSN has become a haven in the field of sustainability and food. Students learn how the body and food work together and change with the seasons. Additional teaching include the cycles of plants/weeds, soil, bees and planets, preparing and sharing food in the kitchen, making traditional remedies, teas, tonics and brews in addition to outdoor exploration of wild food.

TIOSN also offers gardening workshops each month and is holding an open house on May 28 from 10am to noon. All are welcome to attend and learn more about the farm and and any of the programs offered.

To reserve a space for the open house or for questions on any of the training programs, call Joan at 860-764-9070, email [email protected] or visit Location: Holcomb Farm, 113 Simsbury Rd, West Granby. See ad, page 65.
