We do have exhibit spaces still available and welcome health practitioners and local food entrepreneurs to apply. Please contact the organizer for more details. We also encourage other like minded organizations to help us promote the Grow Your Health event.
There is no greater need in our society today, than for citizens to actively pursue health and wellness as part of a balanced life. We aim to encourage local sourcing of food, growing your own food, and exploring the culinary arts as part of an overall wellness plan. Hope to see you at this exciting event!
