Special Ticketed Event
"Did you know your food can travel as much as 1,500 miles just to reach your plate? These travelling miles are referred to as “food miles” and they have a profound impact on farming practices, the quality of your food, and the environment.
The 'Food Philanthropy: Connection with People, Food and Culture’ event will discuss eating healthy, natural & organic foods, nutrition, and explain how purchasing products locally benefits our health, and benefits the health of the environment.
Watch Andrew Muto and the Nature’s Emporium Team, including Raw Food chef Pedja Milosavljevic, while they prepare and serve you a delicious three-course luncheon.
Also receive a specially prepared goodie bag presented by Nature’s Emporium just for attending the workshop.
Food sampling to follow the luncheon.
Tickets are $25.00 (adults) and $10.00 (children under 12)
Space is limited, so purchase your tickets before they sell out.

"With the warm months already approaching, the excitement for spending time in the sun is rising!
Should we wear sunscreen? How beneficial is being exposed to U.V. rays? Why is vitamin D good for us?
This month we're fortunate to have Carley Simandl (bio coming soon) answer those questions for us and cover much more!
For those of you that haven't checked out our our potlucks yet, I have to say that the food is getting better and better and the company of like minded individuals with stimulating conversations is better than ever!
Don't forget to bring Organic food, since many of us wish to avoid toxins from conventional produce; and please read through the "About" section carefully before stopping by :)"
