What’s Happening at Goodwood

Mindful Monday Series

Every Monday in January | 12:10 PM – 12:50 PM | Carriage House

Start the New Year with mindfulness. Mindfulness has been shown to increase focus, productivity, and creativity, displaying positive applications in virtually every area of our lives. Take one hour each week to be fully present, and begin 2019 with renewed energy to achieve your goals.

It’s free to come to any of the classes. The first three classes in January will be a 3 part series in Mindful Meditation & Stress Management taught by Pamela Chamberlynn. The last Monday of January will be a beginner yoga class led by KC Knudsen. Though each class will be focused on a different topic, it is not required to come to previous classes to enjoy the next.

Friday Lecture Series

Proper Pruning Practices

February 1 | Noon | Jubilee Cottage

Our cooler dormant time is a great time to be pruning our trees.  Not only is it easier on us to do yard work this time of year (remember the heat and humidity of last summer), but is also easier on the trees.  At this program, Stan Rosenthal will show us how trees work, so that we can prune our trees (or get someone else to) to keep our trees healthy and more wind sturdy.

Stan Rosenthal currently works for Big Bend Forestry in urban and rural forestry. Prior to that he retired in 2016 from the University of Florida-IFAS/Leon County Extension as a Forestry Extension Agent where he had worked since 1995.  Mr. Rosenthal has received numerous awards and recognitions, including the Forester of the Year, Project Learning Tree (PLT) Facilitator of the Year and Business Partner of the Year awards from the Florida Forestry Association (FFA).  

During this Friday lecture, Mr. Rosenthal will share his knowledge of forest management including preparing forest management plans, timber sales, reforestation, invasive exotic and weed control, prescribed fire and ecosystem restoration.  This program will be held at Goodwood Museum & Gardens in Jubilee Cottage. Feel free to bring your lunch or get takeout from the Rev Cafe.
