Paris South – University of Maine Cooperative Extension and the Oxford County Soil and Water Conservation District plan to offer gardeners two face-to-face workshops on landscape and yoga in June.
The first workshop, “Natural Landscaping: An Ecological Approach to Landscaping,” will begin on Friday, June 3 at 2 p.m. with Rebecca Long, a sustainable agriculture and horticulture professional from the University of Maine Cooperative Extension and Education and Oxford County Soil and Water Remaining district outreach coordinators.
Those who attend can learn how to work with nature to make landscapes more resilient, pollinator and wildlife friendly, and easy to care for, according to an expanded press release.
The second workshop, “Yoga and Mindfulness for Gardeners,” is scheduled for Thursday, June 16 at 10am, led by Sara King, 4-H Professional and Certified Yoga Instructor in UMaine Cooperative Extension.
King will guide participants through a yoga flow inspired by the sun and the natural world in an outdoor setting. This course will cover yoga poses, breathing, and conscious visualization and is open to all abilities and experience levels.
Both workshops will be held at the Oxford Cooperative Extension office at 17 Olson Rd. Suite 3 in the south of Paris.
Registration is required, and the sliding scale plan fee of $15 per family per workshop is optional. Registration and payment information is available at oxfordcountyswcd.org/workshops.
