Specialty seminars coming to area farm

ROCKWOOD - Kathryn Dean will be holding three on-farm seminars this summer and fall.

Dean has held Lavender Days at her farm in past years but is now moving towards doing Saturday seminars at her Hummingbird Farm ?

On Aug. 13, the topic is Sketching, Writing, and Photography Day on the Farm

On Sept. 17, she offers The Potato in Art, History, and Literature.

Dean has timed the seminars to also promote the opening of the Elora Festival at the first one, the Fergus Scottish Festival and Highland Games on the second seminar, and the third the weekend of the Eden Mills Writers Festival.

All those events are a short drive from her farm.

She will be offering:

- an entertaining, inspiring lecture;

- time to stroll around and reflect on the lecture or write, sketch, take photos;

- a booklet to take home with quotes, notes, images, and a list of further reading; and

- a relaxing afternoon in the country.

She suggests participants bring writing materials, and dress up or down (as preferred), and to bring rain gear and mosquito repellent as appropriate.

Seating will be on straw bales or lawn chairs or participants can bring their own lawn chairs.

Tea, coffee, butter tarts, and other baked goodies will be available. Some may have been in contact with nuts. Notify Dean in advance for gluten-free food.

Hummingbird Farm is located at 5479 Seventh Line North, at RR 4 Rockwood. to contact Dean, email: kaydean@rocnet.

Seminars are $40, including taxes.
