Please join us for an end-of-summer harvest celebration and picnic on Wednesday, September 16, at 6:30pm at the Ann Arbor Center for Natural Healing, 2433 Oak Valley Drive, Suite 100B!

We’ll be grilling up some tasty sausages from local, pasture-based farms ($1.50 each) with yummy lacto-fermented condiments. Bring your favorite summery dish to pass.

This event will be a great opportunity to bring friends and neighbors who may be interested in learning more about the WAPF.

We’ll also be doing a new member drive! Sign up for a WAPF annual membership ($40, check written to “Weston A. Price Foundation”) and choose a free book! Our WAPF memberships help to support the educational mission of the Foundation and their commitment to doing independent nutrition research. Membership includes the excellent quarterly journal, “Wise Traditions”, as well as important action alerts and communications from the Foundation.

We’ll also be holding a raffle to raise money for our local chapter. Win great prizes such as books, classes, and nutrient-dense foods, like local meats and lacto-fermented condiments.
