Our 1st Naturally Mom & Me Showcase Event – Photo’s

Our 1st “Naturally Mom & Me Showcase” was a great success!!! So much fun thanks to all of you that came, participated & shared your adorable babies & beautiful pregnant bellies with us!

Yes, there are kinks to iron out,  but just knowing that there are so many of you interested in supporting local, healthy living, eco-friendly & safe products, as well as learning about new ways to achieve that goal, reaffirms that this is a show we would love to put on for you again!

I must give a huge thanks to the Forks Market for accommodating & supporting this event! To EQ3 Furniture for creating our mom’s lounge, to all my wonderful, talented, local manufacturers that participated in the event (AMP Diapers, Colibri Canada, Little Feather Designs, Mama Pacha Herbal Skincare, Manitoba Harvest Hemp Foods, Over The Rainbow, PeaPod Creations, Sew Dandee, Tree Hugger Cloth Pads) Click on their names to go give them a big “LIKE” on their Facebook pages!, as well as the presenters that took the time to come & educate us all! (Fit 4 Two, Tressa Main Health & Life Coach, Birth Roots Doula Collective & Winnipeg Baby Wearers Group). Also, thanks to Dandy Blend for sampling, First Food Organics & Anointment Natural Skincare for all the samples! Of course I must thank my amazing “granola girls” for “owning it” every time they step in our store! I couldn’t do it without them! And most of all to all the lovely people who shop local and support small, independent businesses! I’ve said it before but I’ll say it again; “It is because of you that we are here, and it is because of you that we will stay” Thank you, Thank you!!!

Here are some of the photo’s of the event & some of our prize winners!

Naturally Mom & Me Showcase at The Forks

MomandMe BannerWe are so excited to be hosting the 1st Naturally Mom & Me Showcase at The Forks!

Our local manufacturers & other Canadian manufactures will be showcasing their “Made in Manitoba” products that cater to moms, babies & children.
Come out and meet our wonderful creators, find out information on the benefits of using their products, watch demos and receive discounts & special deals this day only!

We are setting up shop in the Fork’s beautiful atrium, where we will also have scheduled presentations on nursing, nutrition, doula services, attachment parenting, along with baby wearing demonstrations.
Everyone in attendance will be entered to win an amazing basket filled with products that have been donated from our manufacturers and opportunities to get bonus entry tickets!

This is a free event, however  we have chosen to support the North End Women’s Centre, by accepting donations for them. They are currently in need of baby receiving blankets (new or gently used), or a voluntary monetary donation of choice is also gratefully accepted. Information on the North End Women Centre can be found by clicking here.

The David Suzuki Blue Dot Group  will also be handing out information about the movement. Believing and supporting the right to a healthy environment – clean water, fresh air, healthy food and a say in decisions that affect us.

Hope to see you there! Reply attending on our Facebook event page (using this link & get a bonus entry!)
