This is a 3-session class.

This class is co-sponsored with the School of Earth, Energy & Environmental Sciences.

Plant your winter garden this fall! Gardening provides a wholesome activity that promotes the health of both mind and body. Experiencing the contemplative activities of gardening and interacting with nature can help one to relax, unwind, reflect and restore. And not least, gardening nourishes us with fresh vegetables and fruits. Join us in this 3-session class at the O’Donohue Stanford Educational Farm at this very transitional time of the year where we can still enjoy and be inspired by autumn’s bounty around us, while we prepare the soil and ourselves for another healthy season.


You will learn:
*how to grow winter vegetables and about crop rotation throughout the seasons to maintain healthy garden beds.
*to enhance the harmonious experience of connecting with nature by practicing mindfulness in the garden.
