Gardening is Slow Medicine

In today’s world of go-go-go and quick fixes, we have lost touch with the natural rhythms and cycles of nature, and by extension, those of our bodies. This disconnection may contribute to imbalance in our lives and effectively jeopardize our wellness on every level. Through gardening, however, we are reminded of the gentle unfolding within in each of us, and we learn to allow this process to happen on its own timeline. Quite simply, we cannot rush the growth of a seed, demanding that it become a fully-blossomed fruit exactly when we want it to be.

In this way, gardening teaches us to be patient – investing our time, intention, and energy into the growth of that which we want to manifest, and ultimately enjoying the bounty of our efforts. In addition, when we garden, we touch and breathe in the scent of the earth, and we reconnect with the source of our food – effectively grounding and nourishing us, on many levels.

Using the SunRaven Farm as a classroom, this program teaches you the art and medicine of gardening, skills that you can apply not only to your garden but also to your life. For more information, or to register, contact the Slow Medicine team.

SunRaven Garden Co-Op

Slow Medicine Living is about nourishing the whole being – the mind, the body and the soul. Participating in a community garden is an integral part of this nourishment process — growing your own organic bounty, interacting with others and with nature, moving your body doing something you love — these all nurture good health.

The Slow Medicine Team is dedicated to promoting and supporting such health and wellness, and so it is with great excitement that we are pleased to offer the SunRaven Garden Co-Op, a hands-on, working and learning garden experience for members; located at SunRaven Farm, the Home of Slow Medicine.

The SunRaven Garden Co-Op is a hands on-working and learning garden experience, and an opportunity to connect with nature and with your food. All members participate in one all-hands-on-deck day per month and, in return, will receive hands-on guided lessons and workshops, along with a weekly supply of produce, herbs, flowers that they plant, care for, and harvest.

Suggested meal plans and recipes will also be provided. The SunRaven Garden Co-Op is a whole health experience, and as such, opportunity for meditation and community gatherings are part of the experience and included with membership.

What differentiates the Slow Medicine Garden Co-Op from other CSA’s is the participation component. Here, members spend time together in monthly all-hands-on-deck workdays. These workdays are scheduled once per month, on a weekend, during the 8 month season, and are held in conjunction with workshops and community pot lucks.
