They say goodness grows from the earth and at Woodside Farms goodness certainly is growing as the winter fields are planted for spring. But it’s also growing in the big red barn! Woodside Farms’ red barn is becoming the epicenter for health and wellness at Chickahominy Falls and in greater Hanover County.
Woodside Farms has an abundance of wellness activities to enjoy this coming year. It started with a “Wellness Fair” in January. As the cool January temperatures settled in outside, the warmth and aroma of hot soup and sandwiches wafted from inside. Woodside Farms winter produce was for sale and several locally sourced vendors with a variety of health and wellness products and services were also available. Many of these vendors will be returning over the year at our “Pop-up Markets”. Woodside Wellness Chats offer a free lecture and cocktail reception on a variety of wellness topics. They cover everything from Cancer to Finances and everything in between. Our first Wellness Chat is in March will feature Dr. Mary Helen Hackney from Massey Cancer Center. She will be speaking on the “Truths and Myths of Cancer”. Learn more about other lectures coming this year.
