The Weston A. Price Nutrition Foundation meeting and potluck finally has a location to call home. We’ll be meeting at the Pilgrim Congregational Church in west Redding on a new day — Tuesday (July 19) from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
We will have two guest speakers. Renee Harris of Hardlotion.com will share the health benefits and an easy recipe for apple kefir, a historical digestive aid, and eco-psychologist beekeeper Jim Collins will help us understand the direction that natural beekeeping is headed and explain why the bees are so sick. Both of these presentations will be 15 minutes each.
From there we’ll have a series of 2-minute presentations from our group of amazing farmers, ranchers and producers. The list includes Dan Martin from Lazy 69 Ranch, Marc Duivenvoorden from Duivenvoorden Dairy, Ted Dawson from Wintu Medicine, several buyers clubs, Mary Ocasion from Churn Creek Meadows Organic Farm, Wayne Kessler from Shambani Organics, and more.
This is a potluck, so bring something healthy to share. There’s a $1 donation payable at the door. All proceeds go to the church for the room.
RSVP to Trudi Pratt, Weston A. Price Foundation Chapter Leader, at 244-7873.

We are the Redding Chapter of the Weston A. Price Foundation. This foundation works to enhance the health of people, animals and plants by educating the consumer about the differences between conventional processed foods and nutrient-dense, residue-free whole foods. When it is possible, your purchase of food and other products directly from farms and small businesses helps keep our small towns independent and prosperous. This, consequently, helps us have access to some very high quality products that are not mass-marketed. For more information go online to www.westonaprice.org.
The non-profit Redding Chapter of the Weston A. Price Foundation sponsors this class.
