Even though it is still early August, there is beginning to be a whiff of Fall in the air! This has been such a rich and benevolent summer, and I don’t want it to end. At the same time, I love this turn of the seasons, and I’m so eager to jump in to the slate of classes that I am offering all over the mountains this Autumn! Here is a listing of my upcoming baking, writing, and business planning courses, in chronological order. Also check out my ongoing Classes and Events page for more information.
