Thousands of years of food wisdom ...

The Institute of Sustainable Nutrition integrates traditional food wisdom with the science of nutrition creating an innovative model of holistic health education.Classes infuse the hands-on components of sustainable regenerative gardening, culinary skills, kitchen medicine and sustainable foraging to skillfully weave together the relationship between soil health, human health and environmental sustainability. This amazing relationship reveals an unavoidable connection with the outdoor world and the joyful knowledge that we are working with nature rather than fighting it. This all comes together when what we grow and gather is brought into the kitchen to create delicious, nourishing food and powerful plant medicine. This is when we truly begin to understand that food is our medicine.  And the time spent in these garden and kitchen tasks- tasks that are steeped in traditional knowledge and wisdom- create and sustain our community.


…It’s about nourishment from the ground up

The Lucky Dog Farm

Classes are held at the Lucky Dog Farm in West Granby, Connecticut. The learning takes place in the pavilion and under the sky in the vegetable gardens, the medicinal and culinary herb beds, surrounded by song birds and honey bees.  

“Truly a wonderful program. Hands-on learning you will use for the rest of your life! So thankful I have met these wonderful people!”   Nancy
