[SOLD OUT] ONLINE: Carnegie at the Co-op: Writing the Stories of Your Life

August 3, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - August 17, 2022 @ 7:30 pm
Join me for a three-part online seminar series on how to write the stories of your life.
“To Be a Person is to Have a Story to Tell,” Isak Denison Join me on three Wednesdays, August 3rd, 10th, and 17th, for “Writing the Stories of Your Life” from 6:00 p.m. until 7:30 p.m. From beginners to experienced writers, we are like the old-fashioned one-room schoolhouse as we share our writings and provide tips and support for each other in our writing journeys.
The world is and has always been a bewildering place. Humankind evolved to seek out one another through the unique gift of sharing our stories. As children, we found comfort – from the never-give-up spirit of “The Little Engine That Could,” to the restored belief in things we cannot see in “The Polar Express.” Today, in an age where our ties to one another are frayed and incivility is pervasive, we can turn to each other and embrace a growing movement to restore the art of story writing, telling and sharing to its rightful place in building connection and community.
Based on the experience of past classes, you will have the time of your life as you laugh, cry and stand in awe of the shared experiences of interesting lives and different perspectives. As one student observed, “Each participant is gently nudged … to explore one’s own place in the world through his or her writing. Whether one seeks to be a published author or simply aspires to write in a journal for enjoyment, Sylvia’s expertise and her zest for storytelling are sure to inspire.” (Meredith Plant)
Join me and get hooked on the power of stories to improve your life and those of others.
This class is offered in partnership with our friends at the Carnegie Center for Literacy and Learning and is appropriate for ALL LEVELS.
This is a three-part series and will take place on August 3rd, 10th and 17th from 6:00 to 7:30 pm ONLINE via Zoom. Tickets are $39 for general admission, $33 for Co-op owners and can be purchased here.
Ticket sales close 1 hour before the class time.

Fermenting Vegetables 101

September 7, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - September 7, 2022 @ 8:00 pm
In this class, participants will learn how to get started with fermenting cabbage at home. We will answer any questions, help troubleshoot your ferment failures and you'll get to take some fermented vegetables home!
Along with the hands-on experience of starting a new ferment, students will learn about the practice of lacto-fermentation, an ancient and largely forgotten food way that was important not only to preserve vegetables but also to create probiotic-rich foods that promote gut health and increase the bioavailability of vitamins and nutrients.
PARTICIPANTS SHOULD BRING: a knife, cutting board, quart-sized glass jar or fermenter of your choice, quart-sized ziplock bag, large mixing bowl
The Co-op will provide the veggies (cabbage, carrots) and salt.
Tickets are $30 for general admission, $28 for Co-op owners and can be purchased here.
This class will take place in person in the Good Foods Community Room. We recommend masking as a Covid safety precaution.
