Past + Upcoming Powisset Events

 Last week, we held our first ever "Fit on the Farm: Nutrition & Cooking" where Powisset regular and RD, Amy Boyce, dispelled some of the myths of some of the popular fad diets we hear about today. Afterward her lecture, she showed us how to make a fancy-looking yet very easy meal: Chicken Provencal, Roasted Acorn Squash with Farro with Feta, and Radicchio salad with "James Bond" dressing. Our next "Fit on the Farm" will be held on Wed, Feb. 24th. If there are any nutrition-related topics you would like to learn more about, please email me (

Events & Classes This Week:

Friday, Jan. 22nd: Cooking with Annie: Winter Greens & Grains. Annie Copps just returned from South America where she was the chef/instructor on a luxury cruise line. She is back, and with her guidance, we will be making: Kabbouleh, Stuffed Collard Greens, Wheatberries with Spinach & Leeks, and Quinoa & Kale Gratin.
Saturday, Jan. 23rd: Revive, Renew & Refresh Through Vision BoardA vision board is a board or paper with displayed images that represent whatever you want - a goal, an intention, a hope or dream...or simply a word. Nicole Lewis will be leading us in this workshop to create our own vision board, a tool to help clarify or focus towards this goal. No artistic abilities necessary.

Tuesday, Jan. 26th: Everyday Pantry. Many condiments and everyday pantry items are easy to make and much healthier when they are home made. They can also be tweaked to your own taste. Join us for this fun workshop where we will make ketchup, mayo, nut butter and more. You will leave with samples and recipes of your own everyday pantry items. 

Added Classes:

We are excited to have added 2 dates of "Time to Make the Donuts" - Saturday, Feb. 6th & Tuesday, Feb. 16th (for kids). Jeremy Werther from the Centre Street Cafe in Jamaica Plain will be showing us how to make a classic chocolate glazed donut as well as "sweet potato casserole". 

Ellen O'Hara of Core Asset Fitness will be joining us for 6 more yoga classes throughout the winter with "Flow on the Farm with Yoga". We hope that you will join us for one or all! Class dates include: Jan. 30, Feb. 6, 13, March 5, 12, 19, 26.
