This is a great opportunity to meet the farmers, check out our crops and herb garden, and have all your questions answered! We will have information and a sign up sheet for our 2017 CSA on hand.

It’s a family-friendly event. Please bring your loved ones!

Flowing with the Seasons: The Earth Element

Event Date: September 10,2016
Event Time: 1pm-4pm

Come celebrate Late Summer with an afternoon on the farm!

Late Summer is the harvest season, the peak of abundance. It is a time to experience nature’s bounty and soak up the warm golden glow of the sun. Late Summer marks the transition from yang to yin, inviting us to slow down and receive nourishment in preparation for Fall and Winter. Late Summer is associated with the Earth Element, an energy of grounding, rooting, gratitude, nurturance, and fullness.

Seasonal transition can sometimes bring upheaval, stirring up emotions and shaking up our bodies. The more we can tune into the rhythms of the natural world and flow with the seasons, the more we can harness their energy to cultivate balance and vitality in body, mind, and spirit.

In this class we will develop tools to cultivate our natural vitality and embrace the energy of Late Summer, including meditation, Five Element wisdom, herbal knowledge, and experiential exercises. We will conclude with a celebratory feast in honor of Mother Earth and the Autumnal Equinox.

Participants will leave with a seasonal herbal tea blend made from Pachamama herbs. This promises to be a day of nourishment, community, and fun — join us!

Allie Dodge, Five-Element Acupuncturist

Pachamama is hosting the first annual Red Earth Herbal Gathering.

The Red Earth Herbal Gathering is a sacred ceremonial container created by and for women.  We will gather together to teach and learn from each other, to inspire one another, and to support the beauty and power of what it is to be women doing our sacred work and our life’s calling on the planet at this time. This year we will enter through a sacred gateway, have an opening ceremony, workshops, a Red Tent, marketplace, food, plant walks, a wisdom council and finish with a closing ceremony. This is an earth-centered gathering, with ceremony and workshops focused on women’s connection to the earth and herbal medicine. Workshops will include embodiement practices, meditation, herbal medicine, personal growth, and plant walks.

The power of women gathering is immeasurable. Fellow sisters, we hope you can join us for this magical event!

Come join artist and community engager, Dawn DeAno, for a unique opportunity to paint your own customized 2’x2’ barn quilt. For the past year Dawn has been spearheading a county wide public art and heritage project called Stories to Tell—Barn Quilts of Boulder County. Her goal is to install 20 colorful barn quilts (painted replicas of quilt blocks mounted to barns) by the end of 2017. You can see her work at both Isabelle Farm and Three Leaf Farm.

This workshop will begin with a brief history of barn quilts. After that you will get to choose your own pattern and color scheme from our selection. You will learn how to draw the design on the primed wood and tape off sections to get clean straight lines. You will end up with a beautiful finished work of art to be hung inside or outside!

Pachamama Farm & Wellness has chosen the beautiful pattern below for our historic barn (pictured above).

Dawn will provide all the materials. You bring your enthusiasm, curiosity and three small containers for extra paint if you don’t finish your project.

Ages 10 years old and up welcome!

Cost: $50.00 per person
