Fruity Goats

Looking for a juicy way to emerge from winter and prepare yourself and your fruit trees for spring?

Join gardener and certified arborist Corva Rose and guest teacher and goatherd gardener Tomlyn Foran for this interactive playshop, where we’ll weave together gardening and pruning instruction, goat-based soil remediation, and heart-centered reflection.

As we enter the gateway to spring, these four hours will be a grounding and empowering gift not only for ourselves, but for the world we experience, affect, and ultimately create.

We will cover:


Corva Rose

Corva Rose – Main Teacher

Tomlyn Foran – Guest Teacher

Note: PSW has a Wheelchair accessible indoor bathroom, and the access from parking lot and nursery paths are mulchy but relatively compressed, and accessible with a power chair.

Tiered / equity / community pricing:

Sliding scale allows you to pick your payment amount in the spirit of equity, accessibility, generosity, and redistribution, while simultaneously inviting your conscious investment in a gardening culture that is working to create habitat infused with compassion, and supports this small queer business to operate sustainably.

If you can pay more, you’ll help cover the cost for someone else who needs to pay less.

As a welcome and thank you for your trust, you’ll get our Pruning Guide,
called Slowing Down to Connect.

Corva's workshops, or "playshops," are inclusive and welcoming. She helps us draw our own connections between the gardens of the heart, the literal garden, and the world. As a teacher, she provides that rare mix of the spiritual/philosophical, and literal down to earth knowledge. I learned how to prune a flower bed. I learned how to let go of things in my heart, another kind of pruning. Wisdom emerges from the combined process, yet is playful and unforced. I suspect no two of us at this event had the same journey, yet all came away nourished, challenged, and refreshed.

Thank you for a lovely class on Saturday. I thought the pace and content were just right. I am still meditating on what I learned, and will continue to do so for some time. ~ Christal
