The opportunity to brush horses and feed carrots; pony rides for children, and a mini demo on using your personal body language to communicate and interact with horses. The farm is a private and peaceful spot. TimeBankers and prospective TimeBankers are encouraged to come enjoy the setting, take a stroll, sit on hay bales and just chat if not particularly interested in the horse aspect of this gathering.

Jec is a lifelong equestrian originally from the East Coast who prioritizes helping horses move and perform better through correct physical conditioning. She has authored three training books, teaches widely in the U.S., and remains grateful for every day with horses. She believes the outside of a horse is good for the inside of a human.

Learn how to reduce your waste stream and artfully lower your carbon footprint with Bokashi Composting.

Food waste is 15.5% of landfill trash in California. As it rots, it produces methane that is 25 times as strong as carbon dioxide. When households keep food waste on site by composting kitchen scraps, GHG emissions are reduced.

TimeBank Santa Cruz is promoting Bokashi Composting because it’s quick, easy and highly efficient. You’ll learn each step of this anaerobic fermentation process that quickly converts all food scraps (including meat, fish and bones) into a regenerative fertilizer. It's probiotics for your garden soil that your plants will love.




We’re having our Winter Expo in Pleasure Point on Sunday, Dec 17 from 5 to 8 with a Soup Tasting potluck and mini skills demos.
