Rad! Traditions is our after school workshop program at The Ecology Center. We explore the season through the lens of the farmer, the chef, and the artist.
The Fireside Project
Join us in an exploration of nourishment - for our bodies, communities, and land- as we slow down in the winter months. When we follow the rhythms of the season, nature’s projects present themselves to us. We’ll explore the quiet of the season on our Regenerative Organic Certified farm, with thematic projects including:
On the Farm
Working with winter’s vegetables
Cover crop care
Compost and compost tea
In the Kitchen
Kitchen skills + introduction to cooking
Experimenting with fermentation and preservation
Tasting and experimenting with seasonal flavors
In the Studio
Hand skills and textiles
