"Polyfaces" Movie

Come join us for a great movie documentary about Joel Salatin's well-known farm located near Staunton, Virginia. 

Polyfaces is a joyful film about connecting to the land.  It follows the Salatins, a four-generation farming family, who do everything different than everyone else, as they produce food in a way that works with nature, not against it.  Using the symbiotic relationships of animals and their natural functions, and foregoing use of any agrochemicals, they produce high-quality, nutrient-dense food for over 6,000 families, restaurants, and cafes within a three-hour foodshed of their farm.

Date and time:  Tuesday, August 30th, 7:00 - 9:00 pm

I have scheduled a private class this month.  Look for an update in late March or early April, for my next class, which is likely to be about organ meats, desserts, or fermentation. . . . I haven't decided yet.  Do you have a preference?

Matrix Response Testing

I'm excited to offer this class on Matrix Response Testing!  I have used this method frequently since learning it, and I feel much more comfortable with it than when I taught it last year. 

If you have heard about muscle response testing, kinesiology, or other alternative health diagnostics, you will find this class to be very interesting and helpful.  Matrix response testing is an excellent method for analyzing your body's reaction to foods, supplements, and beauty products.  It is similar to muscle response testing, but easier to use and more objectively reliable.  The class will cover the scientific basis for matrix response testing, along with time for learning and practicing the techniques so you can use them for yourself and your family.

This class is an advanced level and will require a prior understanding of health based on traditional foods.  If you are new to the Weston A. Price dietary principles and the "Nourishing Traditions" book, please stay tuned for an introductory class in the near future.

Date and time:  Monday, February 29th, 7:00 - 9:00pm

Class fee: $7

Please contact me to register, or for more information.  The class size will be limited to 12 students.  No snacks will be provided.
