Check out photos from previous festivals ....
On Saturday, March 5, 2016, the Northern Virginia Whole Food Nutrition Meetup Group will host its fourth annual Grow Your Health Festival at Fairfax High School in Fairfax, Virginia. The event will celebrate home gardening, sourcing organic and local food, and nutrition and wellness. We will show a documentary film; offer class instruction on gardening and nutrition; and host an exhibit hall for gardening services, farmers, food artisans, organic food distributors, and wellness products and services. This is a family focused event that includes education and entertainment for children of all ages.
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!

Debby Ward: Gardening classes and exhibitors, webmaster, marketing collateral, event layout - firstname.lastname@example.org
