Workshops

Workshops at Alegre Farm are not just informative but fun. We’ve got something for everyone to learn. Our passion is to teach families practical ways they can implement sustainable farming, healthy eating, and living life as naturally as possible using natural and holistic methods.

Why come to a Workshop, instead of just reading a book, Googling, or You Tubing it?  First, it’s fun, and everyone learns more hands on. When you put yourself in an environment with other people, who have the same goals in mind you will get a better vision of what you want to accomplish! You will have the opportunity to connect with possible accountability partners and make new friends! You will also be joining a community of Health and Wellness at the Farm!
