Eat Retreat Sonoma County

In April 2011, we invited 35 leaders making waves in their local food communities to a ranch in Sonoma County for the inaugural Eat Retreat.

Eat retreat was so many things for me: inspirational, eye opening, delicious, comforting, hilarious, thought provoking and a big old kick in the pants to get moving on a long list of projects.

Workshop Highlights

The days were filled with attendee-led making sessions and demonstrations.


Dafna Kory of INNA Jam taught us how to preserve small batches of seasonal fruit.
