It seeks to inform and excite community members on how they can live healthier lives through fun and enriching activities centered on the natural world’s resources.
The Festival amplifies the promotion of the benefits involved with spending more time outdoors, fitness, dietary health, food access, community gardening, entrepreneurship, and access to health care resources.
