Slow Living Autumn Gather

October 2024 Dates coming soon

Join us on the farm for the last workshop of the year where we will gather the Autumn harvest, spark creativity, and embrace the change of pace on the farm. 

This workshop will focus on mindfulness, slowing down, and preserving all that we do on the farm before the change of the seasons. Mornings will start in the garden with coffee and tea while we take in the last of the harvest. The days will be spent with creative projects such as foraging, long walks on the farm, natural fabric dyeing, drawing, painting, and photography. For those who want to read or concentrate on writing there will be optional writing prompts each day. We will spend time in the soil planting garlic and gathering seeds along with time in the kitchen making pies, apple butter, and plum preserves. If you wish to knit, there will be a knitting circle and a place to sew. Evenings will start with a shelling hour and then we will gather around the table to share stories and poems over supper. Afterwards you can take in the witching hour following the sunset under the stars. 

All meals will be provided as we use the bounty of the season and cook in the wood-fired oven. An immersion in farm to table ingredients. Braises, stews, soups, mulled cider, cake, and fresh bread to break at the table.  Anyone that finds mindfulness in the kitchen can join in as much as one would like. There are also farm projects with Rick if that is a focus you want to take. You can design how you wish to spend your time at Quillisascut for this weekend as this is a unique and special workshop.

This final gather of the year will take place the first weekend of October. 

Thursday, October 5th (2pm) – Sunday, October 8 (noon). Lodging is included in the farm’s clubhouse or the bell tent for those that want to chat to the moon. You can also bring your own tent to set up in the fields if you prefer. There are four shared bathrooms with showers. Workshop is limited to 12 participants.

You have the option to pay your tuition online, but if you would rather send us a check along with your application, the instructions are on the application. Thank you!
