Super Hero 5K

   Let's go for a run.

   Great Country Farms serves on the committee that oversees Loudoun County's annual Healthy Business Challenge, which is an initiative aimed at improving workplace wellness by developing guidelines for keeping people healthy and by honoring businesses that are good at doing so. The culminating event for this initiative is a 5K run at Bolen Park in Leesburg, with a Super Hero theme -- meaning runners are encouraged to dress as comic book characters.


   


We'd like to extend our involvement in this initiative from the committee room to the race course, so we're putting together a GCF Super Hero team, complete with tee shirts appropriate to whatever hero we decide to be. So if you like to run, or wear strange costumes, or support good causes, email CSA@greatcountryfarms.com and I'll add you to the team list. The race is scheduled for April 24 at 8:30 a.m. We'll cover the entrance fee. All proceeds benefit Boulder Crest Retreat.
At the Vineyard
Yoga and Wine
"Feeling Fine with Yoga and Wine" is scheduled for March 6 at 9:30. Join Alexandra Patton for an hour-long yoga class designed for all levels. Tell your friends and like the event on our Facebook page.

From the kitchen
This weekend we're serving capicola ham sliders with quinoa vegetable salad. Delicious!

Training Postponed
We have decided that Vin 65 is not the best system for us after all, so the trainings that were scheduled for  February 25 or February 28 have been postponed until further notice. We'll keep you posted.
