Update: Yoga in the Sunflowers 2023

Mother Nature has new plans for our sunflowers!

Sunflower fields at Pine Knoll Farm, July 2022. The 2023 summer drought has delayed sunflower growth.

Dear Friends,

Thank you for your continued support of Yoga in the Sunflowers. We have an important update for our upcoming event: The drought in Tangipahoa Parish has significantly delayed the sunflower growth and the flowers will NOT be ready for picking on August 5. The good news is that we are still hosting Yoga in the Sunflowers on Saturday, August 5 at Pine Knoll Farm. Read on to learn more about the special day we have planned… and a new opportunity to pick and enjoy the sunflowers at a later date!

Even though Mother Nature had a change of plans, we’re still looking forward to a beautiful morning. Pine Knoll Farm feeds the spirit with its cool breezes, mature shade trees, and open vistas across a working horse farm. And don’t worry, we’ll still enjoy the beauty of sunflowers… the flowers will just be too small to pick!

Date: Saturday, Aug. 5, 8-10:30am
Location: Pine Knoll Farm, near Hammond. Address will be sent to all registrants.
Buy tickets online for $35

Guests are invited to:

  • Enjoy refreshments made from plant-based, local ingredients by Hammond’s Saint August Brew Company.
  • Join an optional tour of Cherokee Beach, our upcoming conservation easement on the Tangipahoa River.
  • Participate in a raffle for a basket of Aveda goodies from Salon Paris Parker.
  • Enjoy the beautiful scenery of Pine Knoll Farm among a like-minded community of wellness- and nature-lovers.


Later in August, we will open up Pine Knoll Farm again for a special sunflower picking day. Bring your friends for photoshoots and enjoy the Pick-Your-Own sunflower stand! Date TBD — we will let you know when Mother Nature has the sunflowers ready.

Thank you friends. We look forward to seeing you out at Pine Knoll Farm!
