Seeding a Healthy Community

Please join us for the City of Allen's first-annual "Seeding a Healthy Community: A Festival for Healthy Living." The event, which is hosted by Watters Creek, will take place on Saturday, April 4th, 8am to 3pm, at Montgomery Farm located at the SW corner of Highway 75 and Bethany Road, Allen. We will have a booth there and will speak at 10:30 at The Lofts at Watters Creek.

"Spend a Saturday enjoying the great outdoors and a healthy way of life! Bring the family for nature walks, bird watching, kayaking, canoeing, cooking demonstrations, and more! Meet "Seedfolks" author Paul Fleischman at Borders. Shop at a Farmers Market. Take part in garden presentations. Let the children roll up their sleeves and explore their passion for the outdoors through hands-on activities!

This event is a collaboration between Allen Reads, Alliance for a Healthier Allen (Market Street, Presbyterian Hospital of Allen, City of Allen Parks and Recreation and Allen ISD), and a community based EE Consortium (Keep Allen Beautiful, Allen Garden Club, Ecoliteracy Project, Montgomery Farm and Connemara Conservancy.)"
