Raw Food Chef & Living on Live Food Instructor Certification Retreat!

Turquoise Barn will be hosting a Raw Food Chef & Living on Live Food Instructor Certification Retreat. I don’t have all the details yet because I am trying to get an idea of how many people would be interested in signing up. The information I do have as of now is:

•The classes will be taught by a Level 3 Living on Live Food Instructor certified by Alissa Cohen
•The class will be over a weekend sometime between April - July
•Turquoise Barn is a former dairy farm located in the Western Catskills of New York State approximately 3 hours from New York City
•Accommodations will be available at Turquoise Barn and various locations within a 5 mile radius
We may also be offering massage and yoga classes as well. Whether your new to raw foods and would like to jump in or if you’ve been raw for a while and want to expand your knowledge, or if your interested in getting your certificates

For a detailed description of the classes please go to:
http://www.alissacohen.com/classevents
For more information about the site (including pictures and location) of Turquoise Barn go to www.turquoisebarn.com

Contact turquoisebarn@yahoo.com for more information.
Thanks all!
Miche

THe first link isn't working...

I would be interested, but I'm only in NY the third weekend of every month. The dates will definitely determine if I can attend or not.

Thanks Kalisis- I'll make a note of it. Right now I'm really flexible on the time/date and would like to be able to include as many people as possible. I think it will be a really inspiring weekend. I'll keep you up to date on everything. Let me know if you have any other questions, etc.
Oh and i'll fix the link.
Thanks Miche

I was going to suggest we go together, but I can't afford it! It does look like fun though. I've done a ton of reading and use some of the things mentioned too. I would love to learn make more raw meals and more about using my dehydrator though. Maybe you can come back and share!

You can sign up for just the 1st course, I beleive it's $125, if that would help. It can be an inexpensive mini-vacation for you.

Ok, I can't afford the whole thing (wish I could), but I could do the $125. And I'd love to go together Jill - that would be great!

Miche - can you link to the 1st course information? I can't seem to find it this morning.

I forgot to ask for those interested - time frame - sooner rather than later?

I'm debating upon April/May or July - i'm excited about this and would love to get on with it kind of a jump start into the spring. But.......... later the flowers will be in bloom, there will be food in the gardens and the weather will be so much warmer.

What do you think?
Thanks
M

Is Turquoise Barn your place? If so I just emailed you about a weekend stay a few weeks ago! We couldn't work it out the dates but now I'll keep trying. Neat!

Hi Madskye - yes Turquoise Barn is my place. We are working on developing our farm to host healthy retreats and green weddings in addition to the vacation rentals. Hopefully you can get some dates together. I'm planning on doing other retreats that are raw and health related later in the season as well. Once I have dates i'll post them on the website and here as well. Thanks!

I would prefer earlier, but am constrained by the third Saturday thing. That's either the 18th of May or the 16th of April, so if you could work it around either of those dates, that would be great and I would love to come.

And I'm really sorry, but I cannot see anywhere where it says $125. All I see are classes that are $1000 or more. Is this it: http://www.rawteacher.com/prepcert.html?

I just lost the entire post i just wrote. Ok here it goes again.

Kalisis - I checked the link - if you scroll all the way down you'll see the Level I raw food chef certification class $125 - the Level II is the instructor certfication and that is $650. You can take one class or both.

As far as the date - i'm planning for the weekend of March 20th the spring equinox, and it also happens to be a 3rd weekend. Hope this will work for you.
I'll repost this thread with more details (hopefully by next week) including: information about the instructor, accomodations, schedule, cost breakdown, what's included, what's extra, etc.
Thanks!

I may be interested, but am wondering how long the $125 class is and what would be covered.
