Description: We are very happy to be able to offer this amazing workshop of exploration into the world of nature & essential oils. Yesha Karmeli will guide us through four days of perception and consciousness exercises, with essential oils such as myrrh, rose, frankincense, spikenard and others. For us it is clear that we need to develop new faculties, a more holistic mindset, a consciousness that transcends the physical perception in order to find viable solutions to existing problems. Out of this awareness we invited Yesha Karmeli, whom we met several years ago and who impressed us deeply not only with his ability to guide the participants to greater possibilities, but also with his deep humility. We know this journey will be a great help for our work with the bees and intentions to deepen our healing impulses. This four-day workshop presented by Yesha Karmeli, Berlin- Germany, is a unique opportunity to experience the world around us and in us in a different way than our daily life consciousness. He will combine the training of observation with the expansion of consciousness with the use of noble substances like gold, myrrh, rose and frankincense, towards a deeper understanding and perception of their innate healing potential .The further work with these oils will reveal potent relationships and possibilities of healing for the human being and the bees.

Description: Aquaponics Fest is a vibrant weekend outdoor summer festival that is bringing the aquaponics community together in one big face-to-face celebration of home and school-based aquaponic gardening! Aquaponics is the marriage of aquaculture (raising fish) and hydroponics (the soil-less growing of plants) that grows fish and plants together in one integrated ecosystem. The fish waste provides an organic food source for the growing plants and the plants provide a natural filter for the water the fish live in. The third participants are the microbes (nitrifying bacteria) and composting red worms that thrive in the growing media. They do the job of converting the ammonia from the fish waste first into nitrites, then into nitrates, and the solids into vermicompost that that are food for the plants. In combining both systems aquaponics capitalizes on the benefits and eliminates the drawbacks of each. Just some of the exciting things you can expect to find at Aquaponics Fest include: * Aquaponics Experts from Around the World * 28 Workshops and Presentations! * Adult & Youth Exhibits * Contests & Feats of Aquaponic Strength * Live Harvesting & Cooking Demonstrations * Aquaponics Vendors * Fabulous Food Trucks A portion of the festival proceeds will go to the Grants for Plants foundation, whose mission is to help bring aquaponic gardening to schools as an educational tool and healthy, sustainable food source.

All of these are a real inspiration and education for people wanting to live a more sustainable life but needing more information.” The self-guided tour consists of numerous destinations in the greater Leavenworth area. “If you want to get information and inspiration for how to lead a more sustainable life, this is a great opportunity to do so. It will be a lot of fun and will include some spectacular scenery,” Bartholomew adds. For more information go to SimplyLivingFarm.com/tour.html. For tickets, visit WenatcheeRiverInstitute.org.
