“People throughout time and across cultures have used song to bring joy, efficiency and connection to their work alone and with others. The hope of this workshop is to re-awaken this inherent joyous and wise practice and what a better place to do so then in relationship growing, harvesting and processing wholesome food! Farm crews are especially encouraged to come to the workshop together and bring songs and inspiration back into their own fields. Individuals and families are also encouraged to come and help rekindle and experience the joy of work when done in “harmony!”
