Suko Presseau, farm-educator for MacEnroe Farms in upstate NY, along with Caroline Burghardt present a family friendly food and crafts day that will explore Maize (corn) through a variety of hands-on activities. There will be information on the history of the cultivation and use of corn; activities of grinding cornmeal through traditional and contemporary techniques; cooking and eating corn cakes; an interactive cornfield landscape drawing with scarecrow which will be used as a photographic backdrop and as an education tool to discuss farming; and a coloring area with corn-themed pages. Children welcome with parental supervision as well adults who like corn and farms!

Saturday February 25th at 2pm & 3pm: Free beginner Chi Kung classes
*Gentle *Incredibly beneficial *Aligning breath, movement and awareness

Chi Kung is beneficial to physical and emotional well being – it is a practice of aligning breath, movement, and awareness. People of all ages can participate as the movements are very gentle and simple. Participants should wear comfortable clothing and flat shoes.

The Chi Kung classes will be filmed and the footage will be edited into a short video – best described as a video patchwork quilt – as part of the Hospitality group art show at arts@renaissance.

To RSVP email Chris at arts@stnicksalliance.org.
