Happy New Year + Upcoming Events at Powisset Farm!

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday - whether you celebrated with friends and family or lounged on the couch in your PJ's - or both! It was quiet around here over the past couple of weeks but we kicked off 2016 on Saturday with a yoga class with Ellen O'Hara from Core Asset Fitness. And as it turns out the Powisset Farm classroom is a perfect space for a yoga class, overlooking the farm. Ellen & her crew will be teaching at the farm on a regular basis in the near future so stay tuned for more info!

This week is a busy one for Powisset classes and events. Tuesday, the one and only Nicole Lewis, will be teaching another DIY Skincare Class and Wednesday, Tod Dimmick, one of our favorite members and volunteers is leading a Whole Grain Bread Workshop. His homemade bread is shown to the left and yes, you will learn how to make these beauties). Both classes only have a couple spots left so register now!

And next weekend, we have 3 events! Another one of our amazing volunteers, who has a PhD in Biology, Anne Innis, is leading, Winter Walk & Warmth on Saturday at 10am, which is an ecological walk around the farm. After the walk, I will be in the kitchen preparing something warm for us to share. Pre-registration is appreciated so we know how many bowls to fill.  

On Sunday, we have a double-header. At 1-3pm, we will be hosting a Cookbook & Kitchen Utensil Swap which is perhaps my favorite event of the year. It is your chance to clean out bookshelves and kitchen drawers...or your chance to stock up on items. There are always unique finds and both contemporary and ancient cookbooks - a food lovers dream come true. Any extra utensils will be donated to New Life Refurnishing in Medfield and books will go to More Than Words in Waltham. Both are wonderful local non-profit organizations which would benefit from these items! After the swap, at 4pm, we will be hosting Movie Night at the Farm, showing Symphony of the Soil, a documentary focusing on how healthy soil creates healthy plants which creates healthy food which creates healthy humans. The movie is free for all and we will be selling food snacks to enjoy while you watch.

Hope to see you this week!
