3 Secrets of Healthy Families from the Green Mama
November 5, 2014 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pmFree
What: A 30 minute talk followed by lots of Q and A, tea and treats, book signing, mingling with other moms, and children welcome and encouraged (comfortable places for nursing, play area, and bossy 8-year-olds to entertain youngsters)!
Talk details: Ever wonder how your great grandmother would have done it? Or what the current science says about what is really safe and how to “worry smart”? Or just need a little inspiration to get through tomorrow? This upbeat, informative talk is filled with inspiration, science, and just a touch of irreverence. The Green Mama helps parents become what they were always meant to be, experts on the care of their own children (and she promises a little fun in the process.)
About the author: Manda Aufochs Gillespie brings 20 years of green consulting, research, and lots of humor to help people, parents, and institutions. She’s been called the “green guru” and the “mother of all eco-moms.”
About the book: “[Green Mama] is a how-to book, but it’s also a manifesto of sorts: a manifesto declaring that no corporation or manufacturer is the boss of you, and that you have more control over the development of your family than an advertise-and-buy economy would have you believe.” Jordan Yerman, Vancouver Observer.
The book will be on sale at the event –with discount–and part of the proceeds will be donated to the Matraea Centre. And there will be a raffle for prizes!!
