She is currently in her advanced year of Somatic Experiencing therapy certification (Trauma Therapy) and specializes in Therapeutic Yoga with a strong focus on mood disorders (PTSD, anxiety and depression) and stress management.

Let's build a Native Garden! (Date & Time TBD)

Let's come together and lend a hand in helping to preserve this remarkable species. Some 35% of world crop production depends on pollinating species like butterfly's and bees. The consequences of the decline in these pollinators' population is becoming an increasing concern, but we can do our part to turn things around!

Come one come all and join us on the farm for a day of gardening, community, and a care for our planet.

Please bring any gardening tools you have and any wildflower seeds you'd like to contribute.

KAIROS Blanket Exercise Workshop

Cost: $10.00 per person all proceeds go to KAIROS

The KAIROS Blanket Workshop is a teaching tool to share the historic and contemporary relationship between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples in Canada. The KAIROS Blanket Exercise is an interactive learning experience that teaches the Indigenous rights history we’re rarely taught. Developed in response to the 1996 Report of the Royal Commission on Aboriginal Peoples—which recommended education on Canadian-Indigenous history as one of the key steps to reconciliation, the Blanket Exercise covers over 500 years of history in a one and a half hour participatory workshop.

Human progress is neither automatic nor inevitable... Every step toward the goal of justice requires sacrifice, suffering, and struggle; the tireless exertions and passionate concern of dedicated individuals.
— Martin Luther King, Jr.
