Branch and Bloom {Farm Retreat}

Hello friends!  Our craft class for this moth at Branch and Bloom was a Farm Retreat. We held it on Saturday at our friend Jen's farm. Jenn has a small hobby farm and she's a yoga teacher so we thought it would be fun to collaborate and have a Farm Retreat together.   

It was a great day! The weather was perfect ☀️, the animals were adorable, and everyone had a fabulous time.  

Here was our schedule for the day:
10:30am  Welcome and Farm Tour
11:30 Yoga
12:30 Farm fresh lunch
1:30 Craft class {windowsill herb garden}
2:30 Relaxation yoga and retreat wrap up

We started the day with tours of the farm.  The animals were a huge hit! Jenn has goats, pigs, chickens and ducks.





After the farm tour we had our first yoga class outside in one of her pastures.  It was the perfect setting for yoga.

After our yoga class we had a farm fresh lunch.  Wraps and salad from Rachael's family grocery store. We sat the lunch up outside and people ate on picnic blankets and tables. 

After lunch Rachael and I helped everyone make their windowsill herb gardens.  These were simple to do we just added vinyl words to the little pots. We did thyme, parsley, and basil



Here are Jenn, Rachael and I at the end of the day.  Jenn and I bought our "plant lady" shirts and Rachael made hers.  We thought they were so cute!

We always like to take a picture of everyone at our craft classes so we took a big group picture before our last yoga class.

It was a fun day! Everyone had a good time and we were so happy when one of the participants posted this on Facebook :-). 
Next month we are doing a Plant and Pose workshop at Jenn's farm.  Jenn will lead us in a yoga class and for our craft we are going to plant succulents in hypertufa planters.  It should be a fun evening!

I hope you had a great weekend!
