Food & Farmers: A Photographic Journey (overnight)

Collaboration with 

Join us for a week of culinary and photographic adventures! Using the livestock and vegetables at Rock Bottom Ranch as your models, and the nearby flower gardens, streams, trees, and plants as a spectacular backdrop, learn what makes a good photograph, and examine the power of photography to capture and tell stories about the world around you. Meet local farmers and gain experience with all aspects of regenerative agriculture and ranch life. Using photography editing apps and professional printing services, you’ll choose feature images and create your own book. Be the artistic director, artist, and editor all-in-one while telling the story of regenerative agriculture at the ranch, from farm to table. This exciting week will culminate with the opportunity for budding cooks and photographers to sleep over at the ranch on Thursday night, prepare a healthy, seasonal dish in the RBR kitchen or over the fire, and take photos of the night sky!
