Event Description

LOCAL GRASSROOTS ORGANIZATION OFFERING FREE SEMINAR ON PLANTING A HOME GARDEN
Fresh Start Aims To Educate The Public About Prevention Of Disease
Through Holistic Wellness Practices

Fresh Start Restorative Health Services is an organization working to end our nation’s health crisis by encouraging Portlanders to adopt a healthier lifestyle. The local non-profit holds free seminars in North Portland in an attempt to educate the masses on the dangers of eating the high-calorie, low nutrient foods that make up the Standard American Diet.  The organization believes that our nation, doesn’t have to suffer with diabetes, heart disease, or obesity if we just have the right information and support to take care of our bodies properly.

On Saturday, April 20th, the organization will hold a seminar on planting a home garden. Attendees will learn to Save money on groceries, eat 100% organic, avoid genetically modified organisms, and join the movement of over 41Million US households who’ve planted one. The seminar is open to the public, free of charge, and aimed at helping local families avoid the horrors of preventable disease without breaking the bank in the process. Dr. Steven Bailey, national author and lecturer, will be the speaker of the lecture. Participants can engage Dr. Bailey in Q&A regarding diet and lifestyle, munch on free healthy snacks, and enter to win a free door prize.

Portlander and Fresh Start participant Ma Kelly speaks highly of the organization, saying, “I’ve spent hours in nutritional classes at OHSU every month. I’ve learned more in one Fresh Start class than all of those clinics.”

Fresh Start encourages attendees to bring their children, who can participate in Kids Club, a program that educates children on the benefits of healthy eating and exercise. Kids ages 7 to 13 are welcome.
