MINDFULNESS CLASS

NEW CERAMIC FLOWER CLASS

Thursdays in June & July 1:30 pm - Ceramics Studio. Inspired by England’s Tower of London Poppy and Blooming with Age projects in Israel, we shall have our own Ceramic Flower project here at Casa. Each Thursday afternoon in June and July, come by the Ceramics Studio to help create ceramic poppies. No experience necessary to work the clay into a beautiful poppy, and it only takes about 20 minutes to make a single flower. Our goal is to make 200 flowers which will then be a temporary installation in the Casa Garden. Please sign up in the Mail Room, or just come by. One and all are welcome!

INTEREST-ONLY: TOUR & LUNCH AT ROSE STORY FARM IN CARPINTERIA

Date to be determined based on the number of interested participants. We invite everyone to a guided tour and lunch at this stunning 15-acre farm, nestled in the idyllic foothills of Carpinteria, which grows over 25,000 rose plants, and most are currently in majestic bloom. We’ll begin our exclusive one-hour tour, followed by a catered gourmet picnic lunch in their lovely shade garden. Lunch items will include your choice of sandwich or salad, as well as fresh fruit, veggies and dip, farm-made lemon cake, all while sipping on hand-squeezed lemonade or rose-petal iced tea. Cost for the tour and luncheon is $48, to be billed. Even though this is a walking tour, the farm has available a golf cart with several seats.
