Hike, Qigong, & "Munch on Fruit!" - in the Park!
Come join us for some Hiking, Qigong, and "Munching on Fruit"-- in the park! If you want to feel better and connect with other health conscious people, come to this event! We will be meeting at the beautiful Leita Thompson Memorial Park in Roswell, GA (located at 1200 Woodstock Rd, Roswell GA 30075). Besides the pretty gazebo, rose gardens, and fountain you can see from the road, this area is actually over one hundred acres of park land, complete with lake, horse barn, dog park, forest land, and even a Visual Arts Center complete with classroom space and gift shop. Once on the trails, the park has a bit of a 'North Georgia Mountain' feel, rather than North Fulton County. The trails offer varied terrain, but are all very well marked and well maintained. There are 3 trails. The yellow one is 1.12 miles. The blue one is 2 miles; the red one is 2.25 miles. The red and blue trails offer a .25 mile extension around the lake. All the trails are very shaded and crushed gravel. It is wide enough for two people to walk side by side - even with strollers. Note: Dogs must be kept on leashes on the trail. Try to park by the gardens (not the ceramics house) if possible, as it's closer to the hiking trails. How to find us? We will meet under the White Pavilion before the hike. The hiking will begin promptly at 11:00am, so please arrive 10-15 minutes earlier (if needed) to give yourself time to be ready to hike. We will hike for approximately 30-45 minutes before returning to the pavilion area. Please remember to bring some water to drink during the hike as well. After hiking, we will then do a short Qigong Class to clear our minds, ground, and connect with the Earth! Then, it's "Fruit Munching" time! During the 'Fruitluck', we will mix and mingle and share tips and strategies to stay on course with raw food as part of your lifestyle. We encourage you to take advantage of this unique opportunity to get your questions answered. What to bring: • Please remember to bring some water to drink during the hike. • A Raw 'Fruit Dish' that can serve several people. Keep it simple: single fruits; or fruit salads work well. Gourmet raw food treats are also welcome. Some simple mixed greens and/or salads are good additions as well. *Note: Please bring ONLY RAW and VEGAN food to this event! • Try to bring organic foods if possible. • Your own plate, cup and eating utensils (to minimize trash and stay green). • Serving utensils. • Your relaxed self (and possibly a friend or two) and be ready to move, play, learn, share, and enjoy vibrant, delicious food with like-minded individuals! Well-behaved, closely supervised children are also welcome. There is also limited seating at the pavilion area, so you may want to bring a blanket or chair. Cost? This event is FREE! However, we are always open to donations of any amount that can help to cover the cost of the Meetup website dues, supplies, clean up and miscellaneous expenses! Please RSVP for this event - but only respond "YES" if you actually plan to attend! If your schedule changes and you cannot attend, please be considerate and change your RSVP as soon as you know, so that we know you're not coming and/or you are not preventing someone else from attending. Thank you! We'll see you there! Dr. SAM and Shannon -Your Raw Food & Healthy Lifestyle Atlanta Organizers
