Letter from Publisher
Dear NA Indy Readers, The kids are heading back to school and it’s an ideal time for parents to hit the reset button, taking stock of myriad challenges today’s children face. Meredith Montgomery confronts these headon in “21st Century Parenting: Preparing Kids for the Future.” She offers insights into raising kind, resilient and resourceful kids in a world vastly different from the one we grew up in.
Adults and kids will find plenty of healthy activities and options in this month’s issue. Take a walk on the wild side with April Thompson’s “Wild and Wonderful: Foraging for Foodies” as your guide. And locally, the Cumberland Arts Festival returns to delight families with arts, music, and entertainment on Saturday, August 17.
I am thrilled to make some announcements about Natural Awakenings Indy! This month I have the pleasure of introducing local celebrity Chef Wendell Fowler in our August Community Spotlight by Jenn Willhite. Chef Wendell is Indy’s own champion of plant-based eating, and will be contributing regularly to our new… drumroll please… “Plant Medicine” section coming soon. I can personally attest to the healing powers of plants as medicine, and I hope you’ll keep an eye out for it.
Another tidbit I can’t wait to share is that Natural Awakenings Indy will soon have a new website. It’s a work in progress, but will be dramatically different and will offer incredible new community engagement and advertising opportunities. Stay tuned...
As always, thank you for your continued readership, and please remember to support our advertisers. Without them, there would be no Natural Awakenings Indy!
