Hello, Friends!

juan snow 12-17

We hope you all survived the snow last week. Wasn't it beautiful? Here we are taking extra hay to the animals in the barn. All of our animals were safe and well taken care of. We added outdoor heaters to help with the cold temperatures and keep them safe.

We are also excited about the workshops we will have for you next year besides some of your favorites like natural beauty products and GAPS, we'll be continuing our gardening series with Gwinnett Tech and having some great new cooking classes as well!

Simmering Potpourri

A Holiday Recipe from our Education Director Angie

Angie runs all of our field trips and camps at the farm and she recently gave us one of her favorite holiday treats, simmering potpourri. It's easy to make and great for gifts. Here's how to make it:

4 cinnamon sticks broken (to release scent)
1 Tablespoon whole cloves
1/2 cup fresh cranberries
1 large or 2-3 small whole oranges or other citrus fruit
2 -3 sprigs of rosemary

Put all the ingredients in a bag and tie with a ribbon to give away. To use it in your home -
Slice fruit and combine with other ingredients in a small saucepan or crock pot. Cover with water and simmer or turn crock pot on low. Add water as needed. It will fill your house with a wonderful scent perfect for the holidays.
