Happy Open Farm Week! Join us for a great new event combining some of our favorite things—yoga, local food, and great people! We will gather together for a 1 hour yoga practice, led by certified instructors Krissy Ruddy and Sarah Diedrick at the Intervale’s Community Barn. As we meditate on sense of place, they will inspire you to feel connect to your food—and the land and people from which it comes. After the practice, the Intervale’s Chelsea Frisbee will lead us on a short tour to Half Pint Farm, where we will meet the farmers and enjoy some delicious local food!

This event is open to all levels of yoga experience. Please bring your own yoga mat and a pair of comfortable shoes for our walk through the Intervale.
