SNOWMASS VILLAGE ” The fifth annual Snowmass Wellness Experience, set for Aug. 15-17 in Snowmass Village, will focus on organic, sustainably grown and nutritious food. The event also will feature yoga sessions, spiritual well-being presentations and comedy performances.

Keynote speakers for the Wellness Experience are Barbara Damrosch and Eliot Coleman, who will deliver back-to-back talks on Saturday evening, Aug. 16. Damrosch’s talk is titled Beauty and Bounty in a Cook’s Garden, while Coleman will speak on Beyond Organic: The Promise of Future.

The husband-and-wife duo own Four Season Farm in Harborside, Maine, a year-round vegetable-producing operation that has served as a model of small-scale, sustainable farming. Damrosch is the author of the “The Garden Primer” and has a weekly column, A Cook’s Garden, in the Washington Post. Coleman’s books include “Four Season Harvest” and “The New Organic Grower.” Together, the two hosted the “Gardening Naturally” series on The Learning Channel.

Events at the Wellness Experience include talks by Mariana Bozesan, author of “Diet For a New Life,” and by Kendra Wilcox, of Kendra’s Kitchen Natural Foods; comedy shows featuring New Age comedian Steve Bhaerman, aka Swami Beyondananda; a slide show and workshop by Basalt horticulturist Jerome Osentowski; and a Yoga + Wine session and the Chocolate Chakra Tour, led by yoga instructor David Romanelli.

Competing in the Organic Cook-Off are local chefs Dava Parr, Ricki Lee McKenna and Clark Church.
