Shout out to the Wholistic Nutrition Program (Group 6) Students!
On Friday, September 22nd, the Wholistic Nutrition Program Group 6 (WNP6) students hosted a free community event!
We had a great turn out of friends, family, community members, current students and alum of The Wellspring School. Everyone loved the unique booth ideas, the yummy samples, and our student’s enthusiasm!
Electronic versions of ALL of their incredible recipes and handouts will be available by following THIS LINK before October 26th, 2017.
FREE Community Event! Wholistic Nutrition Health Fair
One of the things we look forward to with every one of our Wholistic Nutrition Program groups is the Community Health Fair they are all required to host as one of their additional requirements near the end of their program. The students work hard to put together an event that is educational, fun, family friendly and provides the community with an opportunity to learn about wholistic nutrition and health related topics.

If you are a gardener then you know that Ceanothus is often referred to as wild lilac and does well in sandy, dry soil – making it a great drought resistant planting choice for Pacific Northwest gardens.
Staying Cool in the Kitchen with The Wellspring School
It’s summer and temperatures will likely stay in the upper 80’s and low 90’s for the next couple of weeks. For most of us, especially those of us hearty Portlanders without A/C, that means staying out of the kitchen or at least away from the oven for as long as possible! In line with the summer season, we made a couple of delicious salads at our last Cooking Lab that were very easy and delicious.
