Classes & Workshops
We host educational programs throughout the year, from classes and hands-on workshops to a tour of the kitchen. For those interested in going deeper, we offer several intensive sessions, from one day to one week long, covering our nutritional and culinary practices, and our organizational and business model.
Your pets may be suffering from malnutrition because of the food they are eating. There is so much information, and so much hype, in the world of pet foods, you may find yourself being “petfooled” as Joni Kamlet likes to say. Whether you feed a prescription diet, grain free, home cooked or raw, this class will have something to offer you.
Topics covered will include the disappointing truth about pet food, identifying nutritional deficiency in pets, and adding foods from Three Stone Hearth, such as bone broth and liver, to supplement a pet’s diet.
Joni Kamlet is a Registered Veterinary Technician (RVT) and a Certified Canine Rehabilitation Assistant (CCRA). She also has her certification in Applied Clinical Nutrition (for humans). In her current role as the Northern California Veterinary Representative for the company Standard Process, she teaches veterinarians about nutrition and supplementation. Joni also lectures to pre-vet students at Cal Poly and will be speaking at the American Holistic Veterinary Medical Association in October.
