Community Pantry

Tuesdays, 5:30 p.m.
Every week our registered dietitian, Lela Niemetz, will be offering live cooking demonstrations from her home kitchen at her farm. The first 30 people who sign up for each week will get a FREE box of farm fresh ingredients.

Mindful Music

Thursdays at 11 a.m.
Don't want to try talk therapy but still looking for something healing? This individual workshop can help you focus on your mental health through songwriting- no experience needed! This is offered by Anne Buckle, a Nashville songwriter. Anne grew up learning to play music from her cousin June Carter Cash and cousin-in-law Johnny Cash, and each week she will work with you individually!

Mindful Movement

Thursdays 1pm
Looking for something therapeutic that isn’t talk therapy? Want to change how you work with stress, anxiety, or depression? Give Mindful Movement a try and harness the mind-body connection by using gentle, novel movement to change how you think and improve how you feel.

If you have anxiety and would like to try a weighted blanket, let us know! We have blankets to loan out to you. Weighted blankets have been shown to relieve anxiety and provide a feeling of safety and relaxation. If you'd like to try one, please call our Office Manager at 315-859-4340.

If you suffer from Seasonal Affective Disorder, or simply get down during times of less sunlight, you might benefit from a full-spectrum Happy Lamp! We have Happy Lamps available for loan. They have been demonstrated to increase the level of vitamin D in your system, which is linked to depression. If you'd like to try a lamp, give our Office Manager a call at 315-859-4340.
