Nutrition 101 Class-Sunday June 27th

Join us on the farm for a day of work, learning and fun!
Sunday, June 27th, 9am -1:30pm
Ekar Farm, 181 S. Oneida, Denver CO 80224
I will be co-teaching a class with a fellow nutritionist, Jo Schaalman at Ekar Farm. At 9am, there will be a class on Permaculture, and at 11am Jo and I will teach Nutrition 101. The class will be:
A discussion on the health and nutrition benefits of being involved with and eating food from a communal Jewish farm. We'll cover a little bit about basic nutrition, why fresh produce is best, how to prepare freshly harvested food so that it retains the most nutritional value, as well as some Jewish thoughts on nutrition. Taught by Jo Schaalman and Juliet Glaser, Master Nutrition Therapy Candidates.
Work, Learn, and Fun!
With our herb spiral chugging, we will plant a Forest Garden, demonstrating Permaculutre concepts and innovative growing techniques. Really cutting edge stuff. This work and class will begin at 9 AM. At 11 AM, Jo Schaalman and Juliet Glaser will be teaching Nutrition 101. Around 12:30 we will kick back and enjoy. For those who are not Community Gardeners, Founding Sponsors or Work Share members, a contribution of $18 is appreciated but not required for participation in the Permaculture course. Please RSVP. The class size is limited.
