Slow Living Retreat

Hosted Online | December 3-4, 2021

The annual Slow Living Retreat is a weekend event where we learn new skills, practice self-care, and engage in community conversations, bringing in makers and thought leaders in the sustainable fashion, food, and lifestyle spaces. This year, as we prepare to move into a new season, we will be embracing the gifts of winter as a theme for our gathering, learning and sharing about the food, activities and design concepts for seasonal slow living. 

This year’s retreat will again be online, allowing for expanded reach and more ease of accessibility. Come join us, live or on your own time, wherever you are.

what to expect

We will start the day with a relaxing yoga class, after which we gather with everyone for a coffee chat with Emma and Mary of Lady Farmer. Then we'll all begin our 75-minute workshops together! We have Eva Kosmas Flores teaching Intentional Design, Kirsten Shockey showing us how to make small fermented food gifts, and Christi Johnson guiding us through stitching embroidery in her embroidered talisman workshop. That night, we'll end with a Community Happy Hour that includes a special musical guest!

All weekend long attendees will connect and share workshop resources within the Lady Farmer ALMANAC, our private online community. Attendees also receive free-trial access to the Premium section of the ALMANAC, along with event-exclusive discounts & benefits, beginning with 15% off everything in the Lady Farmer Marketplace for the weekend. Recordings of workshops will be accessible for 3 months and are included in the price of your ticket.
