The holiday wreath is a symbol of the season that comes with as many origin stories, legends, and tales of its meaning as there are traditions that embrace it. One of our favorites is the wreath as a symbol for the wheel.  In the days of our agrarian ancestors, the growing season of darkness and cold meant it was time to take the wheel off the wagon and pause from laboring in the fields.

Do you need a pause for you? Come for a festive day of foraging, fun and artisanal wreath making in the countryside!

In the morning, instructor Arrin Sutliff will guide us in gathering materials from the land, followed by a delicious farm-to-table lunch prepared by a local chef. In the afternoon, we will gather in the barn where each participant will construct a beautiful, handcrafted wreath to take home, with hands-on demonstration and guidance from Arrin

I attended the 2018 Slow Living Retreat with my adult daughter, and we had a marvelous time. Food, location, people were all top shelf. We made so many new friends and learned so much. It is a wonderful event and I hope it continues!
