Attendees will ferment their own B, C and Dill (broccoli, cauliflower and dill) using a hands-on kit and learn to kick the sugar out of condiments to create their own fermented mustard, ketchup and ranch dressing.

Morales will lead a seminar on “Simple Solutions to Attain an Eco-Conscious Life” by providing a peek inside her inspiring eco-chic home. She’ll offer approachable ideas for conscious living, provide information on how to make small changes that make a big impact on the planet. She will have a show and tell experience of eco conscious products.

The Village Health Clubs & Spas, the premier healthy lifestyle clubs in Arizona, will hold demonstrations of aerial yoga, meditation, and traditional yoga. With four Valley locations, the Village Clubs have provided the community a place to get fit, rejuvenate and be social for 30-plus years. Each club has over 82,000 square feet, offering members weight training, cardio, court sports, pickleball, swimming and so much more. Additionally, the clubs offer chiropractic, physical therapy, nutritional and MedSpa services to reinforce their dedication to overall wellness.
