Registration Closing Soon for Training in Sustainable Nutrition and Gardening


Become immersed in sustainable food practices through a yearlong program from The Institute of Sustainable Nutrition (TIOSN). The program begins September 23, 2017 and meets one weekend each month for a year. In the program, 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 Tuesday, Septebmer 5 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. All are welcome to attend and learn more about the farm and and any of the programs offered.
