2019 Happenings at a Glance

Winter at Four Winds Farm has offered weeks of much-needed rest and
introspection; plus a few gardening conferences. New ideas have been
sprouting and we are excited about 2019!
The hours of pouring over seed catalogues are over. MANY thousands of
seeds for flowers, herbs and produce have been ordered and are on their
way. Planting begins as soon as the weather is warm enough to heat the
greenhouses!
Below are some of our winter ‘seed ideas’ which are beginning to sprout:

New this year: U-Pick Herb and Flower CSA

(Community Supported Agriculture)

Four Winds Farm is offering an opportunity for you and your family to pick a
broad variety of fresh herbs and beautiful flowers, weekly, for a really low
price! Both flower and herb selections will vary through-out the growing
season and will be flagged for easy harvest. In addition, herb recipes and
tips will be emailed weekly to members for at least 18 weeks. Scissors and
sizing-containers will be set out to make for easy harvesting. Cutting
flowers will be planted all around the front herb garden, also near the farm
market. PLUS for kids and adventure seekers (like me), there will be a
flower path to the back pollinator and fairy gardens, adding an extended
sensory experience.
There are 2 CSA options:

1. If you are a pre-paid member of the Terripin Farm’s produce CSA,
add $60 for 18 weeks of fresh herbs and flowers ($3.50 a week).
Pre-paid. The season begins June 1st.
2. If you are not a Terripin Farms CSA member, you pay $75 for 18
weeks. Pre-paid.

Through the Looking Glass:

When we look through the mirror, we can envision new paths to a joy-filled life. Physical health and radiance is an inside job. It is our decision to claim it. In this powerful class we will delve into the inner process of holistic healing (mind, body and spirit). On our inward journey we will explore ways to release old wounds and step through the doorway of fear-based emotions.  Moving deeper, we will gently release blockages that no long serve us. Tools for our journey will include: mindfulness, positive visualization, breath work, journaling, pattern-breaking techniques, inner listening, affirmative prayer, Reiki & Flower Remedies.

Lead by: Deborah Lee, Holistic Health Practitioner, and Ph.D.

When: April 4, 11, 25 & May 2; 6-8PM       

Fee: $90—includes: 4 sessions, personal flower remedy and notebook
