Food For Life plant-based nutrition & cooking classes
are available in west/central MAINE as well as in VT and NH.
I am portable, so if you live elsewhere, contact me, and I’ll see if I can come to you.
I am taking some time off from teaching full time to complete my off-grid cottage. I anticipate that I’ll be offering a regular class schedule beginning late Spring or early Summer 2019. IN THE MEANTIME, I am still available upon request for single classes in your home or community and to host documentary screenings. Simply let me know your needs, gather some friends and family, and I’ll come to you. See the list of available classes below:
