Increasingly Arlington offers healthy choices for living. Walking, cycling, outdoor recreation and farmers markets are among these healthy County initiatives. But how to really incorporate these into an overall healthy lifestyle can seem difficult. For example, is it possible to cycle or use transit on shopping trips? How might I carry my fresh tomatoes and ears of corn home with me if I don't drive there?
Join us for an interesting discussion about the wonderful nutrition available at Arlington's Farmers Markets lead by Senior Nutritionist Jennifer Able of Virginia Cooperative Extension. And great tips from our colleagues at Arlington County Commuter Services about how one might go shopping without having to take your car. Healthy living takes practice!
What are your thoughts? Bring your ideas to the discussion for how we can better incorporate healthy living practices into the shopping trip!
Oh, and while you're here, visit the Rosslyn Farmers Market taking place just outside our door (Thursdays, 11am-2pm). Yummy fresh local food!
Mobility Lab will have fresh sandwiches and drinks for this brown bag. We hope you can join us!
