Medicinal Herb Production
Scholarships are available for new farmers (those growing 10 or less years) who are active NOFA/Mass members. To apply please clickhere. Description: Learn the ins and outs of commercial medicinal herb production, from field to drying room. Participants will get an overview of the production and planning methodologies that Full Kettle Farm uses. The workshop will also focus on post production handling and herb drying for teas, oils, and other value added products. Full Kettle Farm is a one-acre herb farm located in Sunderland Center. Now in its second year, the farm provides a model of small-scale production with a focus on permaculture, high-value cropping, and creative marketing strategies. Join instructor Alan Surprenant, who has been growing fruit trees for over 30 years, to learn the invaluable skills of pruning and grafting. The day-long workshop will take participants through the how, why and when of both pruning and grafting, accompanied by hands-on practice at both. This is an opportunity to add two skills to your repertoire that will improve the health and vigor of your fruit trees. About the Instructor: Farmer Greg Disterhoft began working with medicinal herbs after six years of large-scale organic vegetable farming in Massachusetts and California. His passion for working with herbs started in 2014 while managing Goldthread Herb Farm alongside master herbalist William Siff. Greg and his business partner Tamara McKerchie started Full Kettle Farm out of a desire to create a space for community, promote herbal education, and to play in the dirt. Full Kettle Farm produces herbal teas, value added products, and hosts ongoing workshops and events. More Info: Lunch will be potluck style from 12:00pm 1:00pm. Bring a dish to share. Coffee and tea will be available during the workshop. To Join Nofa/Mass go to www.nofamass.org/membership

Thursday Zen of Improv 4
The Zen of Improv 4: Two-Person Scenework *Pre-requisite: Zen of Improv 3* Eight Thursdays 6:30-8:30pm starting May 5, 2016 Sunderland, MA $160 In Zen 4, we immerse ourselves in two-person scenework, the very heart of longform improvisation. We strengthen our scenework muscles, add more tools to our improv tool box, and practice our ability to edit scenes. How does environment and object work inform your scene? We'll play around with that too. We'll also experience questions like: When should I fight my fear and when should I follow it? What does true agreement and acceptance feel like? How can I best serve the needs of the show? We'll also continue to explore discovering and holding onto the all-important emotional point of view. Plus, we'll really dig into how to follow the show where it wants to go. Let's get in a lot more of those vital reps too! So much juicy material in Zen 4. Ooooh, baby, this class will make you feel sooooo good while stretching and challenging you in all the right places. So much yum ahead!
