'Living Green' workshop offered Monday

Ellsworth Chiropractic and Wellness Center, Ellsworth, will present a special educational workshop entitled "Living Green" at the chiropractic office, 187 E. Main St., next Monday.

As individuals strive to make lifestyle choices focused on reducing their mark on the planet, they are seeking natural alternatives in every area of their lives. Recycling and re-purposing play a role, but there is much more that can be done to transition to a more natural, healthier way of living.

This is a must attend event for anyone who is interested in simple and creative strategies families can use to live in a more chemical, toxin- and stress-free environment.

The workshop will address planetary resource limits, how people can make positive changes, and preventing soil erosion and water preservation at home. The two speakers will be Nate Hagens, a Phd candidate at the University of Vermont Gund Institute for Ecological Economics and editor of "The Oil Drum," an online global think tank devoted to energy and sustainability, and Brian Pieper, a former Wall Street Investment Advisor and owner of Rockworks, a local landscape design company.

"We designed this workshop to help people understand what everyday decisions may be limiting their family's health and how simple it really can be to live in a more natural and healthful way," said Dr. Gayle Nissen. "I would encourage anyone with an interest in simple living and a healthy future to attend."

The workshop is free, and each participant will receive workshop materials and wellness tips to take home with them. Class size is limited.
