Open House at the Holcomb Farm with The Institute Of Sustainable Nutrition

Tour the Holcomb Farm and meet the staff and students of The Institute of Sustainable Nutrition (TIOSN) at their June 10th open house starting at 6:30pm. The free event will include cooking a dish using wild edibles and a garden tour. Attendees will also learn about the TIOSN one-year certification program.

From the classroom, to the kitchen, to the garden and into the woods, TIOSN is re-shaping nutrition education. The certificate is completed in one weekend a month, beginning in September. Students study nutrition, soil health, soil re-mineralization, growing food, foraging, cooking, kitchen medicine and overall sustainable health.

Graduating students prepare a final project to shape their mission and vision of how to change our broken food system. They can then go into their own communities to spread the word about sustainable nutrition.

TIOSN also runs another year-long program “Remembering Our Roots: Herbal Intensive.” Students are now being enrolled for both 2015-16 classes.

Holcomb Farm, 113 Simsbury Rd, West Granby. To RSVP for the open house or for questions, call Joan at 860-764-9070, email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it or visit
