Don’t Miss this inaugural event: #Biodynamic Summer Chautauqua @sustainable_settings July 7th through July 9th!!! This three-day feasting-and-farming extravaganza at a historic #Carbondale ranch sounds like something out of a dream... contact them for more details but read a quoted article detailing the enticements... "This summer, in celebration of its 20th anniversary, Sustainable Settings is hosting the aforementioned Biodynamic Summer Chautauqua. The “adults-only, hands-on regeneration retreat” will feature “slow, deliberate, celebratory eating and drinking,” combined with tours of the gardens and grassfed dairy, a slew of workshops on wildcrafting, medicinal herbs, BD soil preparations, mycology, the benefits of BD cannabis, dowsing (a type of divination used to locate ground water), astronomy, chi gong, and BD mixology and wine. In betwixt, there will be a humane lamb harvest for a traditional asado, live music, hot springs dips, hikes, and a wilderness picnic. Family-style meals—served in the 130-year-old heirloom apple orchard—will be prepared by the LeVan’s son Cooper, who has cooked at both Blue Hill at Stone Barns and Gramercy Tavern in New York"
