6:30-7:30 PM Savoring Life: Mindfulness in Moving, Eating, and Daily Living Advanced signup required

It’s amazing how mindlessly we can go through a day—mindlessly making choices, mindlessly moving, mindlessly communicating, and mindlessly eating. Each moment is an opportunity for change. Learn how to embrace each moment, calming the clutter that may dominate your mind, and begin to engage in a mindful life that will help you reach your goals by causing you to eat, move, and think about yourself in a peaceful and sustainable manner.

Wednesday Night's Nutrition Skill Class:Community Supported Agriculture (CSA)

The few that ventured out in the cold to attend this week’s nutrition class at Farmshed were glad they did! Community Supported Agriculture was the topic of choice and sliced fresh carrots, coffee, and tea were offered as refreshments.

Who doesn’t want to support our local CSA farmers in the central Wisconsin area? They don’t spray their crops with pesticides, they deliver their organic vegetables to various locations in the Stevens Point area for easy pickup, and they use natural practices to help grow their produce on the farm. Share prices and sizes were discussed, along with worker shares, number of deliveries, types of produce, and other food items. We hope that more people can attend the next opportunity at Farmshed, as it was very informational!
