Slow Living Retreat

Join us for a weekend exploration of sustainable & intentional living. The Lady Farmer Virtual Slow Living Retreat is an online event where we learn new skills, practice self-care, engage in community conversations, and learn from thought leaders in the sustainable fashion, food, and lifestyle spaces.

Let's Slow Down

As a Retreat Attendee, experience a weekend of community & learning through group movement classes, interactive workshops, and collective chats & discussions. Our workshop leaders span topics like sustainable living, herbalism, mindfulness, farming & gardening, and more!

A Day at the Retreat

Our first day of the 2020 Virtual Slow Living Retreat started with a relaxing yoga class, after which we gathered with everyone for a coffee chat with Emma and Mary of Lady Farmer. Then we all began one of two 60-minute workshops of our choosing, coming back together in the afternoon for a live podcast recording with Natalie Chanin of Alabama Chanin on Saturday and our panel discussion on Sunday, "Seeking Slow Living", hosted by Sherri Powell of Yours Rurally. Saturday evening we hosted a community Happy Hour, and all weekend long attendees connected within the Lady Farmer ALMANAC, our newly-launched online membership portal!

Giving Back

This past year, 10% of all proceeds from the Retreat were donated to the Acres of Ancestry Initiative/Black Agrarian Fund, a multidisciplinary, cooperative nonprofit ecosystem rooted in Black eco-cultural traditions and textile arts to regenerate custodial landownership, ecological stewardship, and food and fiber economies in the South.
