Grow Your Health Festival - Fairfax, VA



Grow Your Health Festival - Fairfax, VAGrow Your Health Festival - Fairfax, VA
 
@GrowHealthNoVa #GrowYourHealthFest
Our mission is to teach people how to grow their own food or identify sources of locally grown, organic farm-grown food for a joyful and nutritious diet! The Festival will provide tips on how people can garden their way to good health, understand what “organic” really means, find sources for local organic food and make sustainable, healthy food and wellness choices!
On Saturday, March 28, 2015, from 10:00 am to 5:30 pm the Northern Virginia Whole Food Nutrition Meetup Group will host its 3rd annual Grow Your Health Festival at W.T. Woodson High School in Fairfax, Virginia. This is not your average wellness festival. There will be many exhibitors showcasing everything from doTerra essential oils to local wellness centers, but the main focus of Grow Your Health is teaching. You will find a large list of gardening and nutrition classes here.

There is really something for the entire family! My kids are looking forward to the "Gardening with Kids" class where their will be activities and gardening information geared specifically towards youngsters. Check out the scheduled classes in advance so you do not miss the topics that interest you the most! There will also be a very interesting movie called "GMO OMG". Check out the trailer below. The movie starts at 3 pm and you do not want to miss it!



The awesome and surprising twist? There will be healthy dining options available for you and your family courtesy of Bonita Woods Wellness Institute and other carefully sourced vendors. If you are a gardener or a wellness enthusiast in Northern Virginia, then you cannot miss the Grow Your Health Festival! The Virginia Bloggers Club will also be there sharing our top DIY, gardening, and wellness topics. Be sure to get your tickets online to save money at the door! Also, just so you know children under 16 are free! Get ready to kick off Spring with a fun, entertaining, and educational experience at the 3rd Annual Grow Your Health Festival. See you there!

A special thanks goes out to Karmalades, Oh So Good Organics, Seven Oaks Lavender Farm, Carin Kilby Clark, Beagles and Bargains, Goodie Godmother, Blue Crab Martini, Blooming Secrets, Mindful Healthy Life, Jeanne Grunert, Second Ave Photography, and the whole team at Grow Your Health!

Women Impact Now Launch

Women Impact Now Launch
Women Impact Now(WIN) is a voice for women in need right here in our Loudoun County community. WIN is women helping women. We are not only talking about poverty-stricken women that would benefit from immediate basic necessities. We are also talking about women who need that extra boost of encouragement, help with building a resume, help in finding a job, and help with finding hope. We as women can be that for one another and that is what WIN is all about. Women are tough, resilient, caregivers, and fighters. Perhaps no one more so than the female Founder Leah Baker.

Miss Leah Baker has a passion and desire to help other women in need. Not only for today, but for the future...their future! WIN is a network of resources that give these women a chance not only at survival, but a thriving fresh start. We all struggle and go through hard times, but in Loudoun County you are not alone. This is why it is my privilege and honor to support and announce the launch of Women Impact Now on Saturday, March 28th from 10:00am to noon. Everyone is invited. This is a community celebration for the many women who are fortunate enough to find and receive these valuable resources. Cheers to the launching of WIN and to the strong women who are supporting and nurturing each other!
