Hilltop Hanover Farm

On October 1, the Westchester, Putnam and Dutchess edition of Natural Awakenings is throwing a party to celebrate 10 years of publishing in the community. The family-friendly event, featuring healthy food, live music, drumming, yoga, kids’ activities and more, will be held from 1 to 4 p.m., rain or shine, at Hilltop Hanover Farm in Yorktown Heights. Kacey from 100.7 WHUD and the “Health & Happiness” show will be master of ceremonies.

“This is going to be a fun, high-vibration afternoon, so we hope as many people as possible will join us,” says Dana Boulanger, who publishes the magazine along with Marilee Burrell. “We are fortunate to have so many gifted and talented people in our wellness community, and many of them will be collaborating with us at the party to help celebrate our 10th anniversary.”

On hand will be Melanie Ryan, founder of The Center for Health and Healing, leading a meditation to connect with the land, the earth and our ancestors, and Jeffrey H. Poritzky, whose Westchester Spirited Drumming Meet- Up group will lead a community drumming circle. Bring a drum if you have one.

BlisSing will provide live spiritual music, including a few tracks from their soon-to-be-released CD of original chants designed to lift the spirit, heal the heart and invite the feet to dance. Eileen O’Hare, part of BlisSing and a shaman who will be offering a blessing at the party, says, “We do not celebrate life enough! Let’s celebrate more, and let’s celebrate with love and gratitude!”

Other featured guests will be natural henna artist Margie Nugent, who will offer face painting and henna art for kids and adults, using safe, nontoxic products; Eve Folger, who will lead a community Move and Groove class for all ages; and Karen Shaw, who will lead a community Yoga Flow class for all ages. Bring a yoga mat so you can join a class or two.

The kids’ corner will feature fun activities for all ages, including mindful crafts and a kid-friendly yoga class taught by Denise Nobile Founder of Youth Nation Yoga.

Rick Gabrielle and Dana Boulanger will offer complimentary sessions with a BEMER device, which is designed to improve blood flow and circulation in eightminute sessions.

Visitors are encouraged to bring a picnic blanket, as a variety of vendors will be on hand with healthy food and drinks to sample and purchase, including Good Choice Kitchen (organic, sustainably grown, seasonal, local and whole foods); Jolo’s Kitchen (all-vegan meals); Hayfields (café and garden center); Blessed Brew (kombucha); Big Bang Coffee (local roasted, organic coffee); TheTea247; and Babes Delectable (cakes, cookies and deserts).

“The Hilltop Hanover Farm stand will be open as well, so you can buy your organic veggies for the week before you leave,” Boulanger says.

With a suggested $5 donation at the gate, visitors will be entered to win raffles totaling more than $1,000 in unique healthy lifestyle gifts and certificates for products and services. Additional raffle tickets will also be sold during the party. You must be present to win. The Event is sponsored by Friends of Hilltop Hanover Farm, 501(c) (3) and all profits will be donated to Hilltop Hanover Farm.

Hilltop Hanover Farm is located at 1271 Hanover St., Yorktown Heights, NY. For directions, visit HilltopHanoverFarm.org. For party updates, visit WakeUpNaturally.com.
