Happy first day of Spring! Spring is the time of rebirth, renewal and change. We see it all around the farm - new calves are being born, the trees are budding and there's just something Spring-like in the air. This is the time of year when we say, "Spring is just around corner," but here in Indiana, even as flowers begin to bloom, we are mindful that there just may be another snowfall around the corner.
With the many new Spring additions to Joseph Decuis Farm, we would like to introduce another, https://www.bewellonthefarm.com/ . The Joseph Decuis Farm provides the idyllic setting for some amazing events to come and we are excited to announce them.
Be Well on the Farm is the wellness focus of Joseph Decuis where we will be creating events to inspire a healthy focus, influence awareness and encourage personal development.
We look forward to a series of walks and talks in the garden with Andy Balabuch, the Joseph Decuis head gardener. He will share his experiences, talk about what he is growing in the gardens and answer questions about growing your own vegetables. We will share some evenings with Joseph Decuis chefs Marcus Daniel and Eric Sands as they give healthy cooking demonstrations, teach us how to best cook vegetables, and how to can them for future use. Nature walks, fitness events, the 5K/10K trail run with Fleet Feet and weekend retreats, we are just starting to schedule and plan for a health focused year.
We start our wellness focus with a Spring Renewal Series. With New Year's resolutions long gone, spring presents the perfect time for focusing on health. We begin mid-April, meeting twice a week with a combination of a mindful yoga program and an evening lecture series that touches on lifestyle approaches such as nutrition, movement, and stress management. We explore new ways to relax, refocus and re-energize.
Heading up the lectures, Carry DePold, P.A. has spent twelve years of clinical practice in Emergency Medicine and has changed her focus to disease prevention; learning how to treat the root cause, not just the symptoms. I will lead the yoga portion of the series. I have grown up on the farm and know how much it can be a healing sanctuary. I learned and studied both yoga and Ayurveda in India and I look forward to sharing what I've learned of yoga that will help you connect to your innermost self.
Our intention is simple, we would like you to be well on the farm and we hope these events will inspire, motivate and encourage a healthy lifestyle and peaceful mind.
