Sharing Healthy Ideas at The Pear Blossom Festival

MEDFORD PEAR BLOSSOM (6)In Medford, OR, nothing brings out the crowds like the Pear Blossom Festival. The event marks the beginning of spring, and while we attend the event every year, it’s really, really nice when the weather cooperates. This year, we posted up with a “Share Your Healthy Ideas” banner, and simply asked people to give us their ideas for living a healthy life. As we always do, we had a flood of incredible ideas.

We also offered some of our favorite healthy “spring time” recipes, some fresh produce, our wellness trivia game (complete with a nifty Plinko board), and we gave away some of our handy salad shakers to the winners.

It’s an amazing event, and our team in Medford had a blast. Thanks to everyone who stopped by! Here are some more snapshots from the event:

The “Share Your Ideas” Experiment Hit Medford

more kidsIf you asked a 1,000 people, “How do you live a healthy life?” you’d probably end up with 1,000 different answers. What’s awesome is that just about every answer would be right. With so many healthy ideas out there, we wanted to find a way to share them!

This weekend, we headed to the Pear Blossom Festival in Medford, Oregon armed with a “Share Your Ideas” board. To sweeten the deal, we pledged to donate $1 to the Veggie U program  for every idea that was contributed. The results were astounding! Medford brought ideas by the truckload, and it filled our board to the brim. People of all ages and backgrounds stopped by, read other ideas, and contributed their own.

People shared ideas to eat better, exercise, manage stress, quit smoking, and improve the health of their community. The end result was truly inspiring. Take a look for yourself:

We can’t thank the good people of Medford enough. This was the first time we’ve tried this concept, and we were blown away. This got the conversation flowing at our booth, and we loved talking wellness all weekend.

We’d love to keep the ideas coming! You can always share your ideas for improving health, wellness, and healthcare here: Share Your Ideas.
