We’re taking Thriving Thursdays outside this summer!

Come join us on our farm visits to local Community Supported Agriculture Farms (CSA). This is an opportunity to learn more about how your local food is being grown and the families that are our local growers. We will meet at SVT Health & Wellness (in the Wellness Wing)  at 6pm, check in and then carpool to each week’s field site, enjoying walks and farm visits together to learn more about Homer’s wild and agricultural food resources.
