Nourishing Ourselves into Winter with Food and Herbs
 with instructors Kate Coulton & Paige Common


Kate Coulton and Chef and Owner of Eatin Alive, Paige Common will lead participants through a hands on workshop to learn how to prepare for the Winter season.  Attendees will make elderberry syrups and fire cider to take home while learning the folkore and medicinal uses of this age old medicine.  Paige will nourish us with a hearty, warming lunch while we also prepare broths to deepen the support for our immune systems in the coming cold and flu season.  Join us to welcome in the Autumn air as the coastal seasons shift.

Instructor Paige Common: Detroit born and bred, soulful living inspires this gal: healthy diets, hearty laughter and active lifestyle. Paige stated preparing plant-based foods in her Portland kitchen giving life to Eatin’ Alive in 2010.  She believes that a rainbow a day will keep the doctor away. Paige is available for one-on-one health coaching, recipe development, pre/post-natal consultations, small event catering, speaking engagements and classes.
