Farm Workshop: Protecting Your Biggest Asset on the Farm: Your Body

June 25, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

- $20

Jamie and Sara Jane Davis started A Way of Life Farm in January 2009 in Bostic, NC where they grow 2 acres of organic vegetables and raise organically fed non-GMO pork. Due to an injury earlier in his life Jamie found that attention to body movement and a daily practice of yoga on the farm was the way to sustain his work. Learn more at http://www.awayoflifefarm.com/A_Way_of_Life_Farm/Home.html

During this workshop you will learn the most beneficial & efficient ways to move while performing various tasks on and off the farm to prevent injury and keep your body pain-free. We will cover manual task and machine task movement while thinking about how we use different body parts like the neck, shoulders, knees, back and wrists. All are welcome; this information is relevant to anyone who gets out of bed in the morning!

Space is limited; RSVP required. Register online now, or contact Chris Link at chris@appalachian.org or 828.490.2565.
