2010-2011 Natural Strategies to Reduce Breast Cancer Risk

A variety of these meetings will be held throughout Florida from August 2010 through September 2011.

We anticipate receiving a grant to help us with expenses so the cost to participate will be free or very low (sliding scale available and no one is turned away).

Ann Fonfa, founder of the Annie Appleseed Project, and others will be speaking at the various events. We plan to serve an organic lunch or snack. We will have resuable giveaway bags with many interesting contents. We will also hold a free raffle at each event where will give away books, CDs or posters.
