Nov. 7 – Reconnecting With Nature: Walking Tour
November 7 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Posted by Irucka Embry (EcoC2S)
Come to see the two acres that inspired the article, “Martin Acres is the Place to Be” in the Middle Tennessee Local Table Magazine’s Annual Guide [https://zine.localtable.net/index-2020annual.html#page=20]. On this Getting Back to Nature ™ walking tour on November 7, 2020, Obiora and Irucka Embry will talk about the history of our beloved Martin Acres, how our paths led us to where we are today, and the dynamic transformation of our two acres from 2013 until now.
It’s the Fall and past time for us, individually and collectively, to reconnect with Nature, to restore our health and vitality, and to have peace and serenity. Nature is one of the best healers and it can help restore our bodies innate ability to heal itself. We all come from Nature and sometimes just being out in it can help to trigger healing within us.
And a 2009 study by Japanese researchers, that was published in Environmental Health and Preventive Medicine, said that the Japanese philosophy of shinrinyoku, or forest bathing, can decrease stress hormones, fortify immunity with an increased number of natural killer cells, speed postoperative healing, and improve concentration in children with an attention‐deficit or hyperactivity disorder.
Our farm is in the country so please dress appropriately and remember that this is a walking tour so wear comfortable shoes (nothing open‐toed). To register, please visit the Getting Back to Nature website.
