The 2023 Wellness Series focuses on whole health and draws on community expertise. The series is intended to help individuals build a personal toolbox that supports their whole health. Importantly, the series will be led by community members for community members; we intend to highlight the value of local knowledge and skill-sharing.
The topics of our 12-class series include nutrition in local traditional foods, food producing and processing, preserving, art-making using natural pigments (locally sourced clay and plant dyes), and digital and financial literacy. The class facilitators live in, and therefore value investing time in, our dispersed community. Facilitators include community members who run the local credit union, or own local businesses, or, for example, have expertise such as growing microgreens, building websites, or pickling and fermenting.
This series will be directed to adults, and is also open to younger community members who wish to join.
